Does anyone have any information about the Texas Forestry test? I know the state list there is a lot different from ours, but I'm interested nonetheless.
Yep! Took it yesterday and got 2nd
It was all live specimens (little wilted) in a 20 station test with 2 minutes to each station. You had to identify the tree by Genus and Species and then answer a question about it. Station 7 had an extra question used as a tiebreaker.

Wow. That sounds nice. Our test had about seven questions and two specimens per station. I wish ours was more like yours. Oh well. Congratulations on placing second!

It was a good test other than the fact I don't prefer live specimens (I'd like dried personally) but thanks! Will you be at nats?

I'll be at Nationals, so it would be really cool to see all of you forestry kids! I'm from Paul J. Gelinas, and I'm Chinese with straight waist length hair. If you see me, come say hi!

Unless Casey is making a trip for himself, I don't believe he's going. He's super sweet and funny, though.

I got 3rd at Texas with LASA, and got 6th nationally last year. Because of Texas events, we will not be advancing to nationals. pigeon.

<3 I wish. I'll be in Washington D.C. doing a history thing, though. >.> I'd love to go.

I loved watching you and Dylan flip out over some of the stations... And when we'd catch each other's eye and give each other that look of desperation! Guh, our test was horrible. I'm still kind of frustrated.

Nice :roll: Yes, I'm definetely not very calm while taking a forestry test... Especially not when it's such a horribly written exam that we didn't finish one station correctly!

I miss you, Casey <3 Hanging out with you was so much fun!.

What did you get for that compund leaf (might have been station twenty). If I recall correctly there with 7 leaflets, toothed, but each of the leaflets was about 7" long?
