From Enterprise Staff

A segment airing on PBS this week will feature efforts to restore the longleaf pine tree to the native landscape in Deep East Texas.

The segment will air on the Texas Parks & Wildlife television show on PBS stations throughout the state. The show airs Saturdays at 5 a.m. and 3 p.m., as well as Mondays at 11 p.m. on the Greater Houston PBS station, KUHT-TV.

The show will feature representatives of the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas and the Nature Conservancy discussing their partnership to restore nearly 400 acres of longleaf pine forest in the heart of the Big Thicket. Longleaf pine forests need frequent, low-intensity fires to grow and thrive.

The longleaf pine is also important to the culture of the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas. The show highlights tribal citizens weaving baskets with the pine. The tribe has long been known for its baskets.

More information about the partnership between the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas and the Nature Conservancy can be found at nature.org/texasprescribedfire.
