Th e Extension Forestry program at NC State University Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources is launching its new email newsletter to woodland owners across the state.

Please share the newsletter and s end us your suggestions for topics you would like to see in future editions. Please use the Ask an Expert email link to send your com ments or questions. Extension Forestry faculty from the Raleigh campus and county Extension offices are eager to know what is on your mind and how we can assist. 
These newsletters are deliberately short and to the point. All of the topics listed can be opened for greater details by clicking on the titles. The links associated with the titles will open using the Internet browser on your computer or mobile device. There is a link at the bottom of this email message that allows you to "unsubscribe" from this email newsletter service. We take spam seriously and do not wish to add more clutter to your email inbox.

The workshops begin with registration at 8:30 a.m. and officially start at 9 a.m. and end by 4:00 p.m. or earlier. Participants can bring their own lunch, snacks and drinks, or can order a simple lunch at the door for $15 (cash only please). Classroom sessions, equipment demonstrations and field tours are all included in the program. Advanced registration is required because seating is limited.
