Carolyn Dawson is our new Area Forestry Extension Agent for Cherokee County. Although she has been with Clemson Extension for over 10 years, her responsibilities recently expanded to include Cherokee and Spartanburg counties.
Carolyn received her Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Florida in Forest Resources and Conservation. She started her career in Florida as the Duval County Forester under the Florida Division of Forestry. She then accepted the position of Southern Pine Beetle Forester in Asheville, NC with the North Carolina Forest Service.
In 2011, she joined the Clemson Extension team. Her work includes assisting private forest landowners with timber management, teaching forestry camps, giving presentations to HOAs and other groups or organizations, and working closely with the South Carolina Forestry Commission on the Firewise program. Her main area of interest is Forest Health. Her latest accomplishment involved helping the non-profit organization Carolina Hemlocks get started. Their mission is to locate and treat hemlock trees on private lands in order to save the Hemlock trees of South Carolina. Carolyn is a registered forester and a certified arborist. She looks forward to working in our county and getting to know you and the area.
