Teachers of Forestry & Advisors of Forestry Field Day/CDE Teams,
The purpose of email is for you to acquire pine seedlings to teach reforestation and prepare for upcoming Forestry Field Days. Now is the time!
Please go visit your local Georgia Forestry Commission Forestry Unit and meet them; they are our allies. Tell them who you are and what you are doing. We have new teachers in the South Region and our local GFC Units have experienced the same turn over.
Have them order you in a bundle of seedlings to use for teaching and practice for Forestry Field Days.
The GFC State Tree Nursery is aware of this and is a HUGE supporter and an asset our efforts for preparing for class labs and Forestry Field Days.
If anything else, going to your local GFC County Unit is opportunity for you and your local GFC Rangers to meet one-another and strengthen your relationship on the local level.
The seedlings will keep; I would strongly encourage you to make this a priority within the next week to 10 days.
