Upcoming Events:

The New Year brings new educational opportunities in the field of forestry and natural resources for our area.  In 2023, the Newberry Forestry Association and Clemson Extension will host the 18th biennial Forestry Focus Program.  Unfortunately, we had to cancel the 2021 program due to Covid.  This program is hosted every odd year and in 2023 the meeting will be held on Saturday March 4, 2023.   Topics covered this year will include, SC Landowner Issues, Hardwood Management, Local Market Impacts on Stumpage Prices, Wildlife Food Plots, and Herbicides in Pine Management.  The program runs from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm and will have pesticide credits and continuing forest education credits with the program.  Registration details can be found at the following link:
