WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) announced today that the U.S. Department of Agriculture will invest nearly $300,000 into Louisiana’s Kisatchie National Forest. The money will be used to restore longleaf pine and other native ecosystems and trees.
“Kisatchie is Louisiana’s only national forest, making it a true treasure. Its longleaf pine trees are a big part of the natural serenity of that place,” said Sen. Kennedy. “Lewis and Clark marveled at the beauty of the pines in their writings. This is an important asset, and we need to be a diligent caretaker of it.”
