Sharing Your Tree Farm

One of the many benefits of being in the N.C. Tree Farm Program is the opportunity to learn from other Tree Farmers and to see what they are doing in their woods. A great way for Tree Farmers to share their knowledge and experience is by hosting a Tree Farm tour. Whether you want to invite a small group of family and friends to visit your Tree Farm or a large group of landowners from across the state, here are tips for making your event go smoothly.
