Disaster Prepardness and Recent Storms

If the recent storms have left you with downed trees or you need information on chainsaw safety, visit NC State University's Urban Forest website for this information.

EDEN, the Extension Disaster Education Network, working through eXtension has released four new fact sheets regarding the impact of floods on farms and methods of preparing for and recovering from flooding on the farm. In preparation for spring and the severe weather that potentially lies before us, you may want to revue the resources available through eXtension and EDEN. Their URL's are listed below.

For more information contact your local Cooperative Extension Center and ask for the Commercial Horticulture Agent.
