There is 348,078 acres of privately owned land in Pender County. In 2015 timber harvested in Pender County generated an estimated $22.5 million in sales, which averages out to $65 per acre in income for landowners. For most landowners this is not enough to pay the property tax bills to keep the land in the family without selling it.

To assist landowners looking to find better ways to manage their timber resources, the NC Extension office in Pender County, the NCSU Forestry & Environmental Resources Department and the NC Forest Service are offering a two hour program focused on helping landowners deal with this challenges and opportunities to manage their timber.

Pipe Damaged by Hurricane Matthew to Be Replaced

Drivers traveling north from Holly Shelter Road on N.C. 210 should be aware that a closure and detour is beginning Monday, March 20, and continuing through April 3.

The closure is necessary for Department of Transportation crews to replace a drainage pipe. The existing pipe was severely damaged by Hurricane Matthew and no longer functions.

A signed detour will use N.C. 201, U.S. 17, I-140 and I-40. Motorists are advised to expect possible delays while traveling in the area and are urged to seek alternate routes.

“Since this a total closure, drivers should plan their trips in advance and prepare for possible delays,” said Jacksonville Resident Engineer Trevor Carroll. “Please stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.”

For real-time travel information, visit DriveNC.gov or follow NCDOT on Twitter.

Pender County received new aerial imagery that was captured in early 2016.  The new imagery was funded by the NC911 Board and will support 911 communications as well as local government’s needs.  The imagery is free for download through the NC OneMap Geospatial Portal.

Along with adding the new imagery to our GIS website, there were also updates that included new search options and a new tool.  You can now easily search for cemeteries from the main search tab instead of having to use the “Query” tool.
