The Chatham County Center of North Carolina Cooperative Extension will offer a forestry workshop entitled Minimizing Taxation for Forest Landowners as part of its Enhancing Sustainability Series on Monday, February 10, 2014 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the auditorium of the Agriculture Building in Pittsboro (65 East Chatham St., Pittsboro, NC 27312).

NC State University Extension Forestry Specialist Dr. Mark Megalos will discuss how to minimize the tax liability on your forest land, management operations, timber harvest sales income and estates. He will also talk about the present use valuation program/forest tax deferment. The workshop will offer something for everyone, from new to experienced forest landowners.

This workshop is FREE but pre-registration is required. Pre-register for the Timber Workshop by emailing extension.programs@chathamnc.org (put “February Forestry workshop” in the subject line) or by calling 919-542-8202.
