Forestry Field Day Planned

By  | 

The community is invited to participate in an outdoors event planned for later this month.

On April 27th, Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in the Daleville Community will play host to a Forestry Field Day. The event is open to the public, but will target beginning farmers, limited resource farmers, and socially disadvantaged farmers.

"We're going to talk about tree farming," according to Kelvin Jackson with the NRCS. "We're going to talk about managing of your forest land. We're going to talk about when it comes time to sale, the ways to go about selling for highest value. We're going to talk about managing native stands of pine. There are some individuals that didn't replant after harvesting their timber and there is a way out. There is a way to manage it for maximum returns."

To pre-register for this event, call 601-483-4100, extension 3.
