In early October, the West Holmes FFA chapter sent five members to State Forestry at Hocking College.
The team placed 27th out of 41 teams. As individuals, the members placed: Wyatt Mellor – 66th, Coven Mullet – 142nd, Terry Medley – 168th, John Maki – 213th, and Remington Green – 227th out of 258 individuals.
At State Forestry, members had to take a general knowledge test, identify equipment and forest products, perform timber cruising to estimate diameter breast height, the number of logs in trees, the board foot in trees, and total value of a tree. They also had to identify tree and leaf types and perform map reading. The team also visited Hocking College for a tour of the campus.
