Chapter Highlights


March 19th, 2011 - Triangle Chapter Seedling giveway at North Carolina State Univeristy Arbor Day, State Farmer's Market. News 14 Coverage


The Triangle Chapter held it's first meeting of 2011 at Bennett Point Grill on February 28th. The meeting focused on the stewardship forest management plans being proposed by OWASA, the Orange Water and Sewer Authority. Speakers Pat Davis, OWASA and Dave Halley, True North Forestry, gave the attendees an overview of their organization, the property being managed, the management objectives and approaches to achieving their objectives. The management plans seem quite well defined and sustainable, however the recently mobilized local opposition to most forms of management has left OWASA's board stumped. SAF members, especially those in the Piedmont region of the state, are asked to consider how to support the efforts of OWASA to sustainably MANAGE the watershed to ensure water quality, biodiversity, and meet their fiscal responsibilities. For more information, please see the web site at: http://www.owasa.org/whatwedo/ForestManagementPlan.aspx

April 12th, 2010 - Triangle Chapter/NC State Student Chapter - "Mentors Dinner": The NC State Student Chapter hosted the April meeting of the Triangle Chapter as they did in 2009. The students and professional members shared diner allowing the students to meet, get to know, and ask questions of the professionals about any aspect of their forestry careers. After dinner the newly elected student officers were introduced and student speakers made presentations. We were treated to a slide show of the student field trip associated with the national SAF meeting in Flordia and another slide show of recent Rolleo and Conclave completitions. Additional presentations were made by one student about his international education opportunities and another on student research projects on biomass.
