The Preservation Of Hofmann Forest Essay

713 words - 3 pages

Charles Ramsey 1The Preservation of Hofmann ForestCharles RamseyComm/215Sept. 22, 2014Margaret MehlThe Preservation of Hofmann ForestThere is a plan for sale of Hofmann Forest, owned by North Carolina State University, which has been circulating for about eighteen months now. The first drafts of such a plan were leaked and inflamed those in opposition of the sale, containing information about potential commercial development. What all this means is that even though NCSU is looking to gain a large sum of money for the sale of their forest, which they already have revenue from through various means, they should consider putting the sale on hold so the forest can be preserved properly, with measures such as a written statement of easement.North Carolina State University first put together the Hofmann Forest in 1934, while the late Julius Hofmann was dean of the then-College of Forestry.

They are slated 23,000 acres, while the other 56,000 will go to a new buyer, Resource Management Service LLC, based out of Alabama. RMS is acknowledged even by those in opposition of the sale as "a timberland investment firm know for sustainable forestry practices and working with conservation partners in eastern North Carolina." (Pippin, 2014) However, there is still the matter of 23,000 acres of forest being sold to Hofmann Forest LLC, and after some previous potential buyers tried a shaky verbal agreement, those against the...
