Trees are Terrific

These lessons are important as they teach students about Forest Health.  Forest Health is important to water quality because it allows for water infiltration into the soil rather than running off into nearby lakes and streams.

  1. Describe the many parts of a tree and their function.
  2. Understand the three elements of fire and predict what would happen if one of the elements is absent.
  3. Understand how fire affects trees, wildlife and people.
  4. Understand people’s role in keeping forests safe from fire.
