Abstract:
During the last weekend of September, Mule Days is held in Benson. Conceived in 1949 by Garland McLamb, Mule Days is a four-day long festival designed for people to buy, sell, and pay homage to the mules. The festival is now in its twenty-sixth year and attracted over 50,000 people in 1974. Although North Carolina's mule population dwindled in the past, it has grown steadily in the last twenty years, spurred in part by Mule Days.

Abstract:
More than two-thirds of North Carolina is covered by forests, but the state could face a severe timber shortage in less than twenty-five years because of a lack of forest maintenance. There are issues with small landowners, who own almost eight-percent of the state’s commercial timberland. Quality trees are cut for sale but are not replanted after harvesting, leading to under stocked, deteriorating timberland.
