From Tobacco to Sustainable Forestry

Year Funded




The Forest Education and Conservation Foundation (FECF) will educate logging business owners to support historically tobacco-dependent communities to weather the current economic turbulence. The FECF will leverage the North Carolina Forestry Association’s Prologger certification program to host new business training workshops, increase video resources made available to address logging/forestry-specific challenges, develop business training resources, and increase access to training materials throughout North Carolina’s logging community.
