The Longleaf Sustainability Analysis (LSA) is a longleaf ecosystem-centric map analysis designed to facilitate the strategic, transparent, and evidence-based identification of the "right work" in the "right places" across the historic range of longleaf pine. The LSA combines map data about extant longleaf, suitable sites for restoration, landscape connectivity and other factors related to sustainability to prioritize areas on the landscape for implementation of restoration and conservation actions. The resulting priority maps are intended to support the objectives of America’s Longleaf Restoration Initiative’s (ALRI) Range-Wide Conservation Plan and other conservation work for the next 15 years.
