MARKING A MILESTONE: During 2018, our Forestry Association celebrates 50 years of service. Throughout the year, we’ll be featuring old snapshots and details of our rich history via facebook posts, upcoming issues of the Carolina Forestry Journal, and other platforms. Our Annual Meeting Committee is also identifying program speakers/sessions and events to help us properly mark this milestone.
The FORESTRY ASSOCIATION’S ad is included on page 28 of the 2018 ASCEND magazine -- the annual publication of the SC Chamber of Commerce.

SOUTH CAROLINA BEATS RIVALS IN FORESTRY, according to BUSTER! BUSTER is getting feisty because a neighboring state claims to be number one in forestry. On his day off from WOOF University, he’s been doing some math and has figured out the per acre economic impact of forestry in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia. According to BUSTER, the per acre impact of forestry in South Carolina is $1,627.90! While the per acre impact of forestry in North Carolina is $1,580.65, and the per acre impact of forestry in Georgia is $1,298.38. BUSTER says South Carolina FORESTRY rules! Like BUSTER, South Carolina is smaller than the competition -- but mightier.
