Long Description:

LONGLEAF PINE PLANTING

In the early years of Franklin D. Roosevelt's sojourn in
Meriwether County, he observed that no great effort was made to replace
trees on cut-over or burnt areas not suitable for agriculture.

As a demonstration of replacement, together with erosion and
water-shed control, he devoted a little over five acres of his
farm to the planting of 5000 longleaf pine seedlings,
in the winter season of 1929-1930.

The plantings were made in the area immediately south of this marker.
A tornado in 1954 destroyed about half the original stand.
