The leaves are simple, 4 to 6 inches in length and breadth, 4-lobed, dark green in summer, turning to a clear yellow in the fall. When the seedlings leave our nursery they become the responsibility of the carrier and then the customer. Softwood forests take up about 25 percent of the timberland, with loblolly pine forests being prevalent but Virginia pine and short-leaf pine also being important. Further misunderstandings arise from misinformation and a failure by many to distinguish the validity of different forest plan objectives—such as production forests, or multiple-use forests, managed forests, forested rangelands, roaded natural lands, or private forests—where clearcutting is logically and scientifically a proven tool to manage native forest tree species.

Not to mention that trees can help save $7 billion a year in health costs by reducing respiratory illness. To feed the facility, Enviva sources wood from the Southeastern Mixed Forests and the Middle Atlantic Coastal Forests ecoregions, both of which have been designated by the World Wildlife Fund as critical/endangered because of their high biodiversity and the combination of threats they face, including habitat fragmentation and land conversion.
