Florida Forest Service Makes Presentation
February 19, 2015

Last week, we were visited by Steve Carpenter and Glenn Davis from the Suwannee Forestry Center in Lake City.á Mr. Carpenter and Mr. Davis presented the Superintendent with a check for $34,640.27.á The payment reflected the distribution of the Twin Rivers State Forest receipts for fiscal year 2013-14.

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services manages 36 state forests, and last year, the Department collected over $7 million from the operation of those forests, through the collection of recreation fees and the sale of timber.á

Ten counties that are home to the state's incoming-producing forests benefit from the operation of the forests.á These counties are deemed fiscally constrained and receive 15% of the gross receipts, in proportion to the acreage located in each county.á Based on 2013-14 gross receipts, the Department will distribute more than $370,000 to the various counties.


Mr. Carpenter, Superintendent Moffses, and Mr. Davis
