The North Carolina Tree Farm Association and the Forestry Department at the NC State College of Natural Resources will host a webinar at noon on Thursday, May 25. The program – presented by Robert Andrew Branan, Assistant Extension Professor in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics (ARE) – will cover the path to current federal water and land disturbance regulations concerning forestry and wetlands, as well as state regulation. Specific topics covered will be wetlands delineation policy, stream identification and disturbance, overview of buffer rules, and status of drainage ditches and existing dams.

More information and registration for the webinar.

Disclaimer: though normal agriculture and forestry activities are largely exempt from federal and state clean water protection, altering water courses and wetlands is not considered such even if your ultimate goal is benefit to your use of land for agriculture and forestry. The penalties – particularly federal – are high for mistakes, with little room for forgiveness. As such, this is not a webinar on how to self-delineate whether your land features or activities are exempt from regulation. The webinar is for educational purposes only, and must not be taken as legal advice.

This program is part of the SARE Professional Development Program project Land Summit Professional Development, which focuses on agricultural and forest land use matters.
