Alabama Forest Recovery Task Force Meetings

Damaged Trees in Hackleburg
The Alabama Forest Recovery Task Force will hold a series of meetings from July 18-28 to provide information and help for landowners who saw their timber damaged or destroyed in the storms of April 15 & 27. Meetings will include program sessions from state and federal agencies designed to help landowners work through the recovery and clean-up process. The agenda will cover salvage operations, fire and insect damage considerations, reforestation, government assistance, and tax implications.

These meetings will be held at six locations around the state. The closest meeting location for Winston County landowners is in Cullman on Tuesday, July 19th.

The meeting times will be 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at each location. A detailed listing of the meeting locations is available here.
