What is Forestry Judging?
Forestry Judging gets 4-H'ers outside to learn fundamental skills that foresters use each day to manage our forests in order to provide wood products, wildlife habitats, clean air, and scenic views. 4-H'ers will learn how to identify up to 70 tree species that are found in Georgia, as well as the some of the most common insects and diseases that impact our forests. In addition, 4-H'ers will also learn pacing and compassing skills in order to estimate timber volume.
Practices: Thursdays, 3:45 P.M. until 5:00 P.M.
