From Cinema Verde to the Oxford Film Fest….

Longleaf…the Heart of Pine will be screened at the Oxford Film Fest on Sunday, February 21st from 3:00pm – 4:45pm at Malco Oxford Commons – 206 Commonwealth Blvd – Oxford, Mississippi.

The documentary offers an intriguing look into the rich history and future of longleaf pine forests.  Preserving these treasures is imperative to ensure their survival for future generations to enjoy. After seeing the film, you will better understand how using River-Recovered® and antique reclaimed woods (vs. harvesting from new trees) promotes the longevity of these majestic forests.

 

The Longleaf Legacy

Did you know that many of the historic homes in Charleston, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia were constructed using longleaf pine from Florida? Alachua County Commissioner Hutch Hutchinson offered some interesting insight into the history of longleaf pine and its impact on our culture, history and architecture during Goodwin’s groundbreaking ceremony back in December. His talk was so interesting, we’ve cut it into a single clip (less than 10 minutes) for your viewing pleasure. Check it out:
