Family shields Army from urban sprawl

RAEFORD - As a private pilot, Julian S. Johnson III had a bird's-eye view for several decades as development gobbled up the Hoke County forest around Fort Bragg.

Five years ago, he and his wife, Margaret, accepted a one-time payment to keep his 540 acres adjoining southern Fort Bragg as timber land and not develop it. The money for the permanent conservation easement amounted to half the appraised value of the land, he said.

The 58-year-old grandfather is happy with his decision, which will keep the land in his family. The land has been in the family for more than a century. He lives on, sells timber and pine straw and grows crops on the property, which is between Raeford and the post boundary.
