The Granville County office of the North Carolina Forest Service has moved to 911 Hillsboro Street in Oxford. The reclaimed office of the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Oxford Research Station, offers more space for staff, easier access to the public and a large conference room for meetings and training. The office is also near the N.C. Cooperative Extension office for Granville County, which serves as a partner in assisting landowners.
With a mission to “protect, manage and promote forest resources for the citizens of North Carolina,” county rangers frequently deliver programs to land owners in the field, and are in and out of the office. Long-serving Administrative Assistant Barbara Twisdale will be available to offer assistance from the new office from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Residents and property owners are welcome to stop by with questions or concerns.
While the address has changed, the phone number for the N.C. Forest Service remains the same at (919) 693-3154.
