Grant Funding Available for Certification

The N.C. Forest Service is partnering with the N.C. Tree Farm Program to offer grant funding to promote forest certification. Through this partnership, funds are available for a limited time to pay $150 toward the $350 certification fee for Tree Farms in the counties impacted by Hurricanes Michael and Florence. All of the counties highlighted in red, blue or green in the maps below are eligible for grant funding.

If you have a property in a qualifying county that you would like to certify, now is a great time to do it! For more information, please contact the N.C. Tree Farm Program at or 919-917-8646.
