One of the most significant threats facing North Carolina’s coastal forests is the rise of the wood pellet industry. That’s why I am writing you today, to invite you to the Wood Pellet Forum, an educational public event focusing on the effects of the wood pellet industry on North Carolina’s communities and forests.The forum is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 29, in Wilmington on the campus of UNC-Wilmington. We have assembled an impressive set of experts. The objectives of the forum are to increase public awareness, understanding and appreciation of consequences of harvesting, processing, transporting and burning wood pellets derived from bottomland swamp and other hardwood forest trees.I invite your organization and supporters to save the date and to attend.
