Team members Caleb Rich, Katelyn Stevens, Tess Seibel and Claire Seibel competed against 7 other top Junior FFA teams from across Virginia. They qualified for the event in the fall by being the first place Junior Forestry Team for the Northern Area. The event provides FFA members an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge of trees and forestry-related topics. The event includes the following events: tree identification, equipment identification, calculation of DBH, map interpretation, and much more. They will be recognized at the 86th State FFA Convention on June 18-21, 2012 at Virginia Tech. Special thanks goes out to Kevin Keith, Forester of Henry County for setting up the events.”
