If you live in Montgomery County, you know how important the forests are. We call the Uwharrie Mountains home, like so many before us. The area was inhabited first by native tribes with the mountains and today’s Uwharrie Trail serving as a physical landmark and trading center. As Europeans arrived, the native population was unfortunately pushed out and suppressed. Stories of gold created a boom, and years after Uwharrie National Forest was declared by President Kennedy. Today, the national forest lands are preserved as a resource  – for archeology, human recreation, wildlife conservation, timber sales, natural resource conservation, and more. There are also many acres of private land which, when managed thoughtfully, can serve similar purposes and benefit North Carolinians and visitors alike. Many government and private agencies offer assistance for forest landowners looking to protect and preserve their property for generations to come. When you work with such agencies you can be sure your goals are supported and the land value (intrinsic, financial, wildlife) is preserved.
