David K. Schnake

Forest Manager

 


The Research Stations Division manages approximately 9,700 acres of forestland statewide under the direction of David K. Schnake (NC Registered Forester #1690; Certified Arborist #MA-4939A).
The forestlands managed by the Division serve many purposes including research, demonstration, and education. All forest acreage is managed using Best Management Practices (BMPs).
Timber harvesting, burning, and chemical applications — where applicable — are used to improve stand quality and to enhance both plant and animal communities.

The Division works closely with both State and Federal agencies including the NCDA&CS Plant Industry's Plant Protection Unit, the NC Natural Heritage Program, the North Carolina Forest Service, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and the North Carolina Chapter of the Nature Conservancy, to protect and improve habitats for Federally Endangered Species in North Carolina such as the Red-Cockaded Woodpecker and the Smooth Coneflower.
