Boy Scouts from Moreland’s Troop 48 visited the Sibley Tree Farm on Saturday, September 14, to work on the requirements for the Forestry Merit Badge.

The Scouts learned that pine trees on a managed tree farm are a renewable and sustainable natural resource. Management objectives and techniques were also explained. The overall objective is to maximize pine tree quality and quantity, while protecting the environment and maintaining wildlife habitat.

Ed Guilbert is the tree farm manager and a Forestry Merit Badge counselor. The Sibley Tree Farm is certified by both the American Tree Farm System as a Family Forest and the Georgia Forestry Commission as a Stewardship Forest.
