Atlanta, Texas -- The East Texas Timberland Owners Association (ETTOA) invites all timber landowners to attend a membership meeting and tree farm tour on Saturday, October 13, 2018.  The theme of the meeting will be a working "Tree Farm" with the joining of "Woods, Water, Wildlife and Recreation".  We will meet at 9:00 a.m. at Charles Snowden Tree Farm, 1170 County Road 3544 in Atlanta, Texas.  Association members and anyone interested in attending the tour are asked to wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots. 

Directions:  Charles Snowden’s Tree Farm can be accessed coming from the South at the intersection of Hwy 59 and FR 96 in Queen City, turn left (West) on FR 96 and travel about 3 miles to CR 3544, turn right (North) on CR 3544 and go about 0.8 mile and veer right staying on CR 3544 for 0.3 mile to the gate.  Turn right into the double green pipe gate, with the Tree Farm sign, and follow the road up the hill.  You can also get to the tree farm from the North traveling on Hwy 59 to CR 3559 (across from the weigh station), turn right (NW) on CR 3559 and travel about 1.5 miles and turn left on CR 3544 (West), travel about 1.5 miles to the double green pipe gate on the left.

ETTOA serves the timber owners of Bowie, Cass, Marion and Red River Counties.  We are a non-profit organization, based in Atlanta, whose objectives include educating landowners about good forest management and harvesting practices, and keeping landowners up to date on matters affecting timberland operations, taxes, and legislative actions.  Association members receive information from experts on how to better manage their timber tracts during field trips to forest lands, plants, and mills.  In addition to emails, they receive a quarterly newsletter to keep them informed about forestry matters in their counties, in Texas and across the nation.
