Can anyone give some examples of recent forestry events that we might be asked about at regionals? Thanks!

Thanks Skink! So, I know that the american plum is usually fatter than both black cherry and chokecherry. And that black cherries have 12-16 vein pairs vs the chokecherries 8-11 vein pairs. But does anyone have any other ways to differentiate these three? They're very similar.

Thanks a lot!

What are some good ways to study for this event? I'm working on flash cards right now, but are there any others that you can think of?

I read my field guides. I find that I then remember what I read during the test.

We got a lot of questions about what the wood of certain trees are used for and diseases/parasites certain trees get.

Hello,

In my opinion, it may be helpful to type down the major morphological and ecological charecteristics of each and every species in the tree list. Most subjects will show increased memory when they type down/make notes of such charecteristics, even if they cannot use their typed down facts in the exam. If you are short on time/processing cycles, you can also reptitively read the tree guide. Most subjects will remember it if they read it enough times, though it is usually not as effective as taking notes.

Hey, new to this thread. Does anyone know the difference between Carya tomentosa, and Carya alba? Both of them are Mockernut Hickory, and when I search google, the same results show for each one. Are they different names for the same tree?

Hello everyone!
What is the easiest way to tell the difference between Black Willow and Weeping Willow? I'm having a bit of trouble, and my event is looming. Thanks!
