The Chatham County Center of North Carolina Cooperative Extension will offer a workshop on Resources for Forest Landowners from 7:00-9:00 pm on Monday April 29 in the auditorium of the Agriculture Building in Pittsboro. Many landowners do not know who to turn to for advice or help with questions about their forest land, and this lack of knowledge can have serious negative consequences for landowners, some of whom have been targeted by unscrupulous timber buyers. There are organizations and consultants who are there to help you develop a plan for your forest land, whether your goal is to optimize timber production, create wildlife habitat, develop recreational opportunities, or something else.
