A Family Style Dinner Benefiting Mississippi Forestry Foundation

County Forestry Associations
Share |

Local affiliates of the Mississippi Forestry Association are active in most of Mississippi's counties, especially counties where timber is one of the leading crops. The members of these local organizations include landowners, businesspeople, forestry consultants, forest industry representatives, and anyone else interested in forestry. Each county association plans meetings, industry tours, field days, and other events suited to the needs of the local members. Special opportunities for involvement in forestry-related activities also occur from time to time, such as regional legislative expos, political forums, teacher training, career days, and educational seminars.
