With the hiring of Harry B. Krauz as farm forestry specialist in 1918, the North Carolina Agricultural Extension Service began its forestry program. During the twentieth century this grew to become Extension Forestry.
The year 1918-1919 is really the first year for which we have much information about the farm forestry program, and at that time the extension agents spent their time talking to farm owners about timber management and utilization.
Over the past century Extension Forestry has conveyed information to farmers through a variety of means. In its earliest days it was through publications, and then later it employed such "new" media as the filmstrip below from the 1930s.
Happy 100th anniversary, Extension Forestry!
