The North Carolina Board of Registration
for Foresters was established with the passage
of G.S. 89B. This Chapter requires that anyone who uses the designation ‘forester’, ‘registered
forester’, or any other descriptive terms that include the
words ‘forester’ or ‘registered forester’ and
that directly conveys that the person is a forester must be registered
with the Board. This benefits and protects the public
by improving the standards for the practice of professional forestry
in North Carolina.
Board reviews the qualifications and experience of applicants,
receives and investigates complaints, and takes appropriate
actions against those who violate forestry registration laws.
Board is composed of five members; four are registered foresters
and one is a public member. All members are appointed
by the Governor for a three year term.
