The foresters talk about their daily duties and share their cruiser’s vest with its compass, clinometer, D-tape, increment borer, maps, aerial photos — and of course — the essential rain gear and heavy caulked boots.”

The field trip concludes with a tour of the outdoor equipment show, where students learn about some of the scientific and technological innovations that are used in the practice of forestry today.
