Women in the woods

Written by 

A four-week series geared toward women involved in forestland ownership and management will kick off at 9 a.m. Friday, Oct. 13, in Waynesville and continue with sessions 9 a.m. to noon on Oct. 27, Nov. 3 and Nov. 17.

Hosted by Haywood County Cooperative Extension, “Women in the Woods” will offer timely topics provided by numerous women in the natural resources profession regarding tax law, educational outreach, land management and conservation easement issues. It is designed for female landowners in Haywood and surrounding counties.

Topics include woodland planning; selling timber; wildlife and hunting leases, insects, diseases and education; harvest tax law, present-use tax, cost-share programs; and planning for farm estate and working forest easement. A local mill tour will be arranged based on participant interest.

Programs will be located at the Haywood County Extension office on Raccoon Road in Waynesville and facilitated by James Jeuck, Ph.D., of Haywood Community College. Coffee and pastries donated by the N.C. Tree Farm Program.
