Forestry Judging


Forestry Judging is a competitive event where youth learn about the different types of trees, the insects and diseases that affect those trees, how to pace, learn to use a compass and find out how much lumber they can find in a single tree. 4-H’ers will be taught everything they need to know at practices, but are responsible for studying the trees, insects, and diseases on their own, too. This is a great competition for those who love the outdoors and hiking!

The season runs August - September. Practices are every Tuesday from 5:30-7:00PM. The district competition is on Wednesday, September 7th at the Wahsega 4-H Center in Dahlonega, GA. Transportation and a school excuse are provided.
