|Thompson School Forest Technology students practice tree removal in the Arboriculture (FORT 464) course.|
|When you think about forests and New Hampshire, you probably think of the many acres we have that are covered by dense forest. Afterall, NH is the most forested state in the country. However, we also have many acres of urban forest as well. These can be either individual trees or small patches of trees surrounding our homes, businesses and public properties. These urban forests are cared for by Arborists. Watch this video to see Forest Technology students in the Arboriculture class in action.|
Thanks to New Hampshire forest industry donors and to Caterpillar for their generous support, the Forest Technology program has been able to purchase a new Cat 564 Forwarder. This machine will be used by our students in the Forest Harvesting class as they learn how forest products are removed from the woods. It will also be used by the UNH Office of Woodlands in the management of UNH's forested lands.
