When the new settlers came to this country there was plenty of natural resources.  In the southern U. S.  log cabins were built using longleaf pine.  Today with the help of government programs and agencies encouraging the reforestation of the longleaf pine the longleaf pine eco system is growing once again.  This eco system is vital to the gopher tortoise survival as well as other wildlife species and plants.
