  1. Onslow County Extension Wreath Sale

    September 13, 2017 - November 17, 2017

    Onslow County 4-H, Master Gardeners and Extension & Community Association are pleased to offer 26-inch fragrant wreaths to you in time for the Holidays. These wreaths are made by hand from the boughs of Frazer Fir Christmas Trees grown on the Brookgreen Family Farm in Ashe County. To insure freshness these boughs are pruned from the trees by hand while they are standing in the field. The boughs are trimmed and then attached to a wire ring with clamps. The handmade wreaths are then sprayed with Greenzit. This product seals the needles and evens the natural color variation between trees. Reserve your wreath today as we are accepting pre-orders only. Dates and times of pick-ups will be announced at a later date, should be around the end of November. No deliveries will be made—everyone must pick-up. Sales run from September 13th – November 17th, 2017. For more information, call: 910-455-5873 Checks Payable to NCCE-Onslow County ($22.00)

  2. Forestry Present Use Value Program

    October 25, 2017, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Multi- Purpose Conference Area

    Date: Oct. 25, 2017 Time: 6-8 pm Location: 4024 Richlands Hwy., Jacksonville, NC Instructors: Colby Lambert, Area Specialized Agent – Forestry; Dr. Mark Megalos, NCSU Professor, Forestry; Harry Smith or Gaye Gillette, Onslow County Tax Office You may be paying too much property tax on your land. There is a program in North Carolina to help landowners reduce their property tax burden. If you have forest/farm land and manage it, you may qualify for deferred property taxes! In some cases, you can save upwards of 75% on your property tax bill. Onslow County will also begin revaluation in 2018, which will require all forest management plans to be updated or rewritten. This workshop will help landowners understand the program, management plan requirements, and how to get a plan written. To register, contact Kate Holt at (910) 455-5873 or by email at [email protected] by October 20. The event is free, but you must pre-register.
