Who Can Help: Management
N.C. Forest Service
This state agency exists to help landowners ensure that North Carolina’s forests stay healthy, productive and beautiful for generations to come. County rangers are the key contacts for programs and services the N.C. Forest Service offers including preparing forest management plans, financial assistance, seedlings, insect and disease control. N.C. Forest Service personnel are limited in the amount and type of timber management assistance they can provide and often refer many projects to consulting foresters.
Consulting foresters provide services to the general public on a fee or contractual basis. They must meet specific academic and professional requirements to practice forestry in North Carolina.
