Threats of forest fires are on the rise. That’s due to a flash drought -- or a drought that strikes suddenly -- that’s sweeping across North Carolina and 13 other southern states. September’s record high temperatures and lack of rainfall are leading officials to implement fire bans in some areas of the South. But fires aren’t necessarily harmful for the southern forests. 

Planting the Pledge Drive Trees

Feb 10, 2015

Last week WHQR's Development Director Mary Bradley met up with Angie Carl from the Nature Conservancy, Tony Doster from the American Society of Foresters and Resource Management Services and Victoria Lockhart from Resource Management Services to plant the forest that YOU helped create. During our 2014 Fall Pledge Drive, The American Society of Foresters generously donated one longleaf tree sapling for every pledge made. Coming to a total of 1000 new longleaf trees, together we will effectually restore 5 acres of longleaf pine forests.
