Forestry

The Oregon 4-H Forestry Member Guide is designed to introduce learners to Oregon’s unique forest resources and their management. The manual provides basic information on tree parts, growth requirements and characteristics, tree identification, succession, dendrology, and the locations and species composition of Oregon’s forests. Then, learners put their knowledge to use by focusing on forest management. They gain skills in map reading, compass use, measuring trees, and taking an inventory. They also explore forestry-related career options. The Oregon 4-H Forestry Leader Guide provides specific ideas for extending the learning based on learners’ specials needs and interests and for creating educational displays for fair exhibits.
