Mississippi is blessed with an abundance of forest resources. By knowing and understanding more about our forests, you will be better able to make wise decisions about their management and use. Of course, to learn more about Mississippi forests, you first need to know more about the trees within them. One of the first things you should learn is how to identify some of the most important kinds of trees.

Preparing a Know Your Trees exhibit will not only give you an opportunity to learn tree identification, but it will allow you to share with others your appreciation of Mississippi’s most important, renewable, natural resource. You can show your exhibit at club meetings, county fairs, state fairs, schools, and as a display during National 4-H Week or State Tree Planting Week. You can use the exhibit when making visual presentations and even use it as a permanent wall poster in your room.
