The 2019 Shasta Forestry Challenge was classic forestry with a modern twist, with 89 students and 18 teachers from 14 schools in attendance. The focus topic site was a 120-acre parcel owned by Shasta Forests Timberlands and managed by W.M. Beaty & Associates. Using a computer program called Visual Forester Professional and data collected from plots set up in the parcel, students were able to visually model various management options and recommend the most economical, logical, and legal prescription.
