Forestry Judging

What is Forestry Judging ?

Forestry Judging teaches participants to identify trees, insects, and diseases. They also participate in compass and pacing activities and learn how to complete saw timber volume estimations. Forestry Judging provides an opportunity for youth to gain a better appreciation for our local forest resources and how they contribute to our economy and quality of life. 

Who can participate? 

  • Forestry Judging is open to 6th - 12th graders 

Practices and Competition:

  • Practices will be held weekly preceding the competition 
  • District and State competitions will be held in September
