North Carolina
 State Board of Registration for Foresters


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.

The Board reviews the qualifications and experience of applicants, receives and investigates complaints, and takes appropriate actions against those who violate forestry registration laws.

The 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. In addition to these Board Members, Jennifer Grantham is the NCBRF Executive Director. Correspondence for the Board should be directed to Jennifer Grantham via the contact information listed below.
