South Carolina 4-H Forestry Clinic opens the world of forests to youth. At every age level, youth engage in activities to learn about trees, forestry practices, ecology and human reliance on forests. Youth discover forest resources near their home and around the world.  Youth are recruited from their participation at the Forestry Clinic to join South Carolina's National Forestry Competition Team.  For more information about South Carolina 4-H Forestry, contact Mrs. Jaime Pohlman at
