Everything That You Need To Know About Pine Belt City Guide


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 Long leaf Pine belt covers 36 counties in Mississippi. 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.
