4-H Forestry Project

The Forestry project will help you learn how to identify trees, uses of trees, and the importance of our woodlands. A knowledge of trees and woodland management leads to a greater enjoyment of the outdoors. An understanding of tree characteristics will allow future landowners to choose the best varieties for urban or rural benefits that include cooling, wildlife habitat, and reducing erosion and other types of pollution.

Check the 4-H Handbook for complete exhibit details.
