Celebrate Trees All Year
Do you know how long a centennial is? It is 100 years and in 2004, Wisconsin celebrated 100 years of professional forestry in Wisconsin. Forestry is the science, art, and practice of creating, managing, using and conserving forests to meet the needs of both people and wildlife.
From houses to furniture to paper, wood products are everywhere. And, the good news is that Wisconsin is growing more wood than is being harvested every year. Our forests are helping meet the growing demands for wood products. They also provide a place for us to play--to hike, cross country ski, go snowmobiling and even snowshoe. What else do Wisconsin's forests provide? Habitat for all kinds of critters of course!
You can learn more about Wisconsin's forests and trees by checking out the following stories on EEK! When you're finished with that, try some of our Treemendous Fun activities.
