What We Do
We help connect Carroll County residents to their forest environment. So what can the forestry board do for you?
If you are a:
Landowner/Farmer You can get information on protecting the health of your trees, advice on responsible management and harvesting of trees, and information on record-keeping, estate tax planning, tax incentives for tree-planting, and cost-share programs for forest improvement. One such program is the Backyard Buffers, click the link for more information.
Builder You can learn about protecting trees from damage during construction, and how strong and healthy trees can enhance the value of your project.
Teacher You can get a speaker to come to your class, help with lesson plans on the value of trees, field trips to tree farms, and help with school tree-planting projects. Take a workshop to learn more about trees and forests.
Student You can find local volunteer opportunities in forestry or attend the week-long summer conference on forestry careers at Hickory Environmental Center. Learn about tree identification, forest ecology, wildlife habitat improvement, and much more. An example of a local volunteer opportunity with the forestry board is the weed warriors, please follow the link for more information. High school students interested in a career in forestry or a related field can earn college credit at the Natural Resources Careers Camp. For more information, visit the NRCC website here and contact your local forestry board to enquire about scholarships.
Every year, we judge the Arbor Day Poster Contest for Carroll County students, see this year's winners here!
