Forestry Workshops

In October 2011, The NC Tobacco Trust Fund Commission provided funding support to Mount Olive College to provide educational opportunities to forest landowners, with the ultimate goal to establish forestry associations in Greene, Lenoir, Duplin and Wayne Counties. In each county’s Farmland Protection Plan, landowner education and promotion of forest productsTobacco Trust Fund or markets were identified as needs of landowners.  The initiation of a county forestry association was noted as one way to provide education for forest landowners.  Existing forestry associations across the state are recognized to be important for landowner networking and training.

The grant requires three meetings be held in each county over the next 18 months to address topics relevant and important to forest landowners in each county.  The workshop topics may cover taxes, land use options, estate planning, forestry management plans and other topics that workshop participants deem relevant to land management.   The goals of the workshops are to:

  • provide needed information to landowners
  • encourage key leaders in each county to recognize the importance of county forestry associations that will continue networking and educational opportunities for the landowners in each county.
