Farm forestry is an important part of the study of the general subject of forestry. It has to do with the growing of trees, establishing woodlots and other types of farm tree plantings, their care and utilization. The 4-H forestry club project affords boys and girls the opportunity to study and learn to know many trees and shrubs and something for their uses. Members will plant and care for trees and shrubs for windbreaks, woodlots, erosion control, and to improve the habitat for wildlife. The project affords a fine activity for boys and girls who are interested in the wildlife conservation and restoration program.
