The conference will take place at The Centre at Halifax Community College, College Drive, Weldon. The purpose of the conference is to inform and educate landowners on strategies for estate planning; programs and technical assistance available through state forestry agencies and U.S. Department of Agriculture agencies, forestry and agricultural taxation; and local timber industries. The goal is to restore and conserve threatened forest land in Roanoke Electric Cooperative’s service area by increasing forest owner income and land asset values. As Alton Perry, program manager for the organization sponsoring the conference, stated in a blog post, “For some of our project participants, their land has been in the family for 100 years. It’s extremely rewarding to help position them to make good decisions that increase family wealth and sustain natural resources at the same time.” To register go to https://www.eventbrite.com/e/north-carolina-virginia-forest-landowner-conference-tickets-56943599840?aff=ebdssbdestsearch.
