What We Do
We help connect Carroll County residents to their forest environment. So what can the forestry board do for you?
Students: Find local volunteer opportunities in forestry like helping the weed warriors or earn college credit while learning about tree identification, forest ecology, wildlife habitat improvement at the Natural Resources Careers Camp. For more information, visit the NRCC website here and contact your local forestry board to enquire about scholarships.
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. Backyard Buffers is an opportunity to get inexpensive trees to plant along your stream, click the link for more information.
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. E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our monthly meeting to schedule a speaker.
Builder: You can learn about protecting trees from damage during construction, and how strong and healthy trees can enhance the value of your project.
