The S.C. Master Tree Farmer program celebrated their 65th anniversary on March 2 at the state capital. The Tree Farm program helps landowners to steward their land with sustainable forestry practices. We all know that well-managed land EQUALS better game habitat. As part of the day's activities, I was recognized with the Master Tree Farmer program 2010 Volunteer of the Year award, for my years of raising awareness about forestry and conservation in Colleton County and the ACE Basin. Thanks to Sen. Chip Campsen for recognizing me from the Senate floor podium, and for being a great advocate for sportsman.
