Description

Professional foresters learn to recognize all the factors that make trees grow vigorously and take those factors into account as they plan to harvest logs from a selected woodlot. This activity guide will give you the opportunity to estimate the age of trees and learn about what influences their growth rates. You will also test several soil samples to see if the soil provides ideal growing conditions for trees. Finally, you will take into account the many uses of forest land as you consider various forest management scenarios.
