This series contains information on the operation of the Hofmann Forest and other school forests: MacLean Forest, Goodwin Forest, and Carter Forest. The bulk of the material concerns the Hofmann Forest.
The Hofmann Forest sub-series is further divided into seven major sub-series. The Forest Manager Correspondence details many of the day-to-day details of managing the forest.
The Equipment sub-series consists of information on purchasing and selling Forestry machinery and vehicles. One particular highlight in this sub-series is the problems encountered in procuring heavy machinery during the Second World War.
The Forest Fires sub-series narrates the history and the costs, both financial and human, of fighting fires in the Hofmann Forest from 1936 to 1985.
The Forest Management sub-series contains forest inventories, timber cruises, and information on the planting, harvesting, and sales of the forest's trees. This series details many of the logging activities of paper and lumber companies such as Champion International Corporation, Halifax Paper Company, and the Albemarle Paper Company.
The Non-Timber Activities sub-series contains a wealth of information on managing a forest beyond logging and timber sales. Files in this sub-series detail the Foundation's involvement with hunting, cattle, mining for oil and gas, farming, and road construction.
The next sub-series, Personnel, chronicles the labor shortage faced by the Foundation during the Second World War. There are contracts, work reports, and time sheets of German Prisoners of War who labored in Hofmann Forest in 1945. There are also records of a failed attempt to employ workers from Barbados in the forest.
Another highlight in the Foundation Forests series is the Research sub-series. These records document decades of research performed in the Hofmann Forest, including reports on forest wildlife, tree planting and growth, soil types, and fertilizers.

Scope and Content

This collection provides a record of the North Carolina Forestry Foundation's beginnings, acquisition of forest property for teaching and research purposes, and subsequent management of the forests. The bulk of the collection covers the years 1934 through 1986.

The General Administration series contains the Board of Directors' correspondence and J. V. Hofmann's correspondence. Also contained in this series are records pertaining to the financial and legal aspects of the Foundation and the management of the Foundation.

The collection includes writings by J. V. Hofmann, founder of the North Carolina Forestry Foundation (N.C.F.F.) and its first president. These writings contain histories of the Foundation and its forests.

The Foundation Forests series comprises the bulk of the collection, with material relating to the Hofmann Forest making up the greater part of that series. The collection has a wealth of information on forest management and timber sales. This series is rich in information on non-timber activities such as hunting, forest fires, and research undertaken in the Hofmann Forest.

The Photographs series contains color and black and white images of the Hofmann forest and forestry activities. There are many aerial views of the forest and photographs showing planting and harvesting activities. The majority of the photographs were taken between 1968 and 1977.

The first through fifth series had been processed previously. The reprocessing in 2003 involved consolidation of the correspondence files and division of a large, subject-oriented alphabetical file into the Timber Activities and Non-Timber Activities subseries in the Foundation Forests series.

Historical Note

In February 1929, the North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineering (later N.C. State University) hired Dr. Julius V. Hofmann to set up a forestry program at the college. Prior to his appointment at North Carolina State College, Hofmann served as assistant director of the forestry school at Mount Alto, Pennsylvania.

One of Hofmann's immediate goals was to acquire some forest land for laboratory, research, and demonstration purposes. Unable to secure funding from the university or the state of North Carolina, Hofmann determined the only recourse was to purchase the land on a self-liquidating basis. His hope was that receipts from timber sales would pay for the land. In addition to research, he hoped the school forest would demonstrate how to operate a forest on a profitable and sustainable basis.

Hofmann, along with some trustees of North Carolina State College, incorporated the North Carolina Forestry Foundation on April 15, 1929, to manage and develop the Poole Woods, a 74.94 acre tract in Wake County, North Carolina and the first forest obtained by the Foundation. The Foundation was unable to operate the Poole Woods on a profitable basis and eventually liquidated the property in 1940 and 1941. The Foundation widened its scope to cover all lands acquired for the Department of Forestry. Other Foundation properties included the Hill Forest, near Durham, North Carolina, that the Department of Forestry received as a gift in 1930. The Forestry Foundation purchased the MacLean Forest, located in Hyde County, North Carolina, in 1932. The MacLean Forest was sold in 1942 so the Foundation could concentrate on their recently acquired land in eastern North Carolina, which became known as the Hofmann Forest.

The Hofmann Forest consists of nearly 80,000 acres of land in Jones and Onslow Counties. The Forestry Foundation completed a contract to purchase the land in 1934. The terms of the sale allowed the Foundation to pay for the land on a long-term basis, which they hoped to fund with timber sales. In 1939, the owners of the land indicated they would agree to a substantially lower purchase price if the balance were paid in cash. The Foundation obtained authorization to sell bonds in the amount of $200,000 to raise the money. The Durham Bank and Trust secured the bonds and the Foundation paid off their debt to the bank in 1983.

The Forestry Foundation was beset by conflicting claims concerning the boundaries of the Hofmann Forest. The largest of these claims was the Edward Trott suit, which lasted from 1977 to 1988. The Foundation invested substantial amounts of time, energy, and money in fighting these claims and lawsuits. Onslow and Jones Counties also participated in several property tax disputes with the Foundation. As a result of these tax disputes, the Foundation transferred ownership of Hofmann Forest to the NCSU Endowment Fund in 1977. The Foundation retained responsibility for management of the forest.

The Foundation sold timber from the Hofmann Forest to various timber and paper companies, but the bulk of their sales were made to the Halifax Paper Company of Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina. The Foundation entered into a 99-year contract with Halifax Paper in 1945, which gave the paper company responsibility for the development, harvesting and general management of the property. The company's initial efforts were directed toward developing a drainage and road system and harvesting over-mature timber.

Champion Timberlands later took over management of the Hofmann Forest until 1986, when Champion terminated its lease and the Land Management Committee of the Forestry Foundation assumed responsibility for the forest.

The North Carolina Forestry Foundation continues to operate the Hofmann Forest as a living research laboratory and a productive, income-producing forest with the profits benefiting the NCSU School of Forestry. The Foundation is active in fund raising and both individuals and corporations have established scholarships and professorships through the Foundation.
