Forestry Students Visit High Country
Jim Hamilton, Watauga Extension Director, and Brian Chatham, Watauga Soil and Water District, recently hosted a class of 14 forestry students from Haywood Community College. The students are participating in a soils and hydrology class and toured the Beech Creek Bog, the Boone Stormwater Wetland, and other sites in the county. Harry Yates of Yates Christmas Trees and Landscaping provided the class with a background on the Christmas tree industry and soil fertility issues.
