Longleaf Pine A Natural Treasure For MGA

Along the outer edges of the Macon and Cochran campuses of #MGA, the tree that once dominated the South is making a comeback.

Stands of longleaf pine the University planted just over a decade ago tower above 40 acres of the Cochran Campus near NeSmith Field, where the Knights play their home soccer and club football games. On the Macon Campus’s far west end, in areas also totaling about 40 acres, the almost perfectly straight trees bound portions of the Georgia Premier cross-country course.
