Greenville Spartanburg International Airport Awarded District 3 Tree Farm of the Year 2010

 

 

The Greenville-Spartanburg Airport Commission has been selected as the District 3 Tree Farm of the Year 2010 by the South Carolina Tree Farm Committee.

The 3,517-acre property has been under a written forest management plan for 55 years and a certified Tree Farm for two years. The primary objectives of the farm are aesthetics, stewardship, and financial.
The property is under the multiple use concept, and the Airport Commission’s management activities on the property have been spotlighted in several television news segments. Allowed uses include timber management, general recreation, etc.
“Every acre is important,” said forester Justin Hilton. “Efforts to plant improved seedlings and incorporate current technological advances are paramount...Eradication of invasive species and protection of water quality are core in management activities.”
The South Carolina Tree Farm Committee hosts its annual Field Tour and Awards Ceremony to provide landowners with a forum to learn new management practices, network with other Tree Farmers, and meet some of the state’s top forestry and wildlife experts.□
