Pine Belt (Mississippi)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Pine Belt, also known as the "Piney Woods", is a region in Southeast Mississippi. The region gets its name from the longleaf pine trees that are abundant in the region.


The Longleaf Pine belt covers 10 counties in Mississippi; Jefferson Davis, Covington, Jones, Wayne, Marion, Lamar, Forrest, Perry, Jasper and Greene. It is east of the Mississippi Delta region, north of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and south of the Jackson area.


In the years before Mississippi was discovered by Europeans, Native American tribes populated the state. Specifically in the Pine Belt region of Mississippi, the Natchez tribe resided. The Natchez provided a formidable challenge for French and Spanish settlers, but their population halved less than 15 years after contact with Europeans. Disease and warfare eventually forced them to settle with the Creek people or English colonists.

The Mississippi Territory eventually became a U.S. state in 1817, and the Pine Belt became more populated and Mississippi's main economical attribute next to agriculture. After the American Civil War, railroads were extended into the area.

With its main industry inert, farming became more popular, but due to poor soil, the area struggled.
