Graduate Students Against The Sale of the Hofmann Forest

Dear Dean Watzin,

The graduate students of CNR have become aware of the impending sale of the Hofmann Forest. We petition you to stop this sale. The Hofmann Forest is a unique asset to the College of Natural Resources. Not only does it provide a steady stream of revenue from timber production but it also serves as an excellent teaching tool through countless research projects and class visits that are conducted on the forest.
The loss of the Hofmann Forest would be a huge loss to the University, the College of Natural Resources, and to the citizens of North Carolina. The benefits that the Hofmann Forest provides to the University and the College of Natural Resources cannot be quantified. The indirect economic benefits that the forest provides through research and better natural resource professionals are invaluable to the state of North Carolina.

We petition you to stop this sale now.
