Fredericktown FFA competes in County Forestry Contest

FFA emblem

Recently, members of the Fredericktown FFA chapter competed in the County Forestry contest held at Garrett and Linda Swendal’s Farm in Danville.

For this competition, contestants must show their knowledge in various practicums, and perform a timber cruising on ten different trees. This year’s practicums required contestants to do multiple tasks. They identified the tree, and took the diameter of it, using a tape measure. They also determined how many 16 foot logs come out of each tree. Eventually, they determined how much the wood from each tree would be worth to timber it out.

Fredericktown placed fourth overall.  Fredericktown FFA Adviser is Debra Burden.
