FORESTRY

Students develop an understanding of the practices for maintaining a healthy forest ecosystem through the help of professional foresters. They learn species identification, forest structure and dynamics, and a variety of management approaches.

The Forestry section of the NH Envirothon will deal with the basic knowledge of forest types and facts that influence their diversity and use. Generally, your study should concentrate on the basics of how trees function and their importance to the forest ecosystem. You should focus on forest types, composition, identification and characteristics, important insects and diseases of New Hampshire forests, and the benefits of forest land and forest management practices. The Forestry test will also include a few questions related to the current issue theme, "Adapting to a Changing Climate". The learning objectives and resources under each section will include the current issue topics.
