In other forestry news the NC Forestry Service posted the following on their Facebook page:

In recognition of World Water Day, we would like to highlight our NCFS water quality foresters and affiliated staff. In early March, NCFS water quality foresters held their annual meeting where they received an update on Best Management Practices (BMPs) and reviewed the agency’s efforts to provide technical assistance services to loggers, landowners and forestry technicians in North Carolina. During this annual meeting, attendees visited Headwaters State Forest and DuPont State Recreational Forest. These visits provided water quality foresters with an opportunity to assess some necessary BMP improvements to roads and stream crossings and to provide collective improvement recommendations. The meeting ended with a review of a stream restoration on Reasonover Creek, located below Lake Julia. To learn more about this restoration project and others managed by the NCFS, visit…/wq_streamrestoration.htm. #forestryBMPs
