Caswell Beach Maritime Forest
Maritime Forest provides protection from storms, buffers temperatures and provides habitat for wildlife. In North Carolina, these habitats are becoming increasingly rare. Caswell Beach is home to a 10-acre parcel of Maritime forest, located along Caswell Beach Road.
In 2018, Caswell Beach Plantation (which consists of four property owner associations) along with the Town of Caswell Beach put measures in place to protect this area to keep it “as pristine and natural as possible” The Town Commissioners codified protection of this area through Ordinance § 98.01 PROTECTION AND MAINTENANCE OF AREAS ZONED CONSERVATION, which provides guidance on areas identified for conservation.
