About 60% of the total forestland in North Carolina is owned by non-industrial private forest landowners. While the forest sector is an economic engine in most of the rural regions, timber production is not the primary reason for owning forestland for the majority of family forest landowners. Forests offer several alternative income opportunities for landowners, which are often compatible with their primary objectives of owning forestland, and some of them can be achieved without or with little additional efforts. This workshop educates natural resource professionals and landowners about forest-based alternative income streams available to their region.

Who should attend: professional foresters, resource professionals, Extension agents, and landowners
