The trees and forests are a significant part of the appeal of living in Fearrington Village. They offer shade,prevent erosion, and offer wildlife habitat. Join Matt Jones, Horticulture Agent with the NC Cooperative Extension Chatham County Center, for an overview of the tree communities in Fearrington, the major species, successional status, threats to forest health (including deer overpopulation and invasive species), as well as potential opportunities for improving forest health, and the health of our community.
This program will be followed by a walk in the woods with Matt next month on April 27 to identify trees, shrubs, and flowers in the forests. We will learn useful skills for plant identification as well as helpful botanical tools and resources.
If you plan to attend the March program via Zoom, please choose Education Programs under “Services” from the Fearrington Cares website (fearringtoncares.org) and join the meeting at least five minutes before the program begins
