Forestry Program Summary

We had a very successful landowner program earlier this week. Thanks to Myrtlewood Plantation for letting us use the clubhouse. I had lots of help from office staff making our sponsor board, location signs and running registration. Thanks to three UGA Extension Scientists for coming down to talk about management plans, forestry production, and pest control. They covered many topics which was followed by a field visit. Here are some pictures:
