Mobile application created to aid foresters

UGA Extension and the Southern Regional Extension Forestry have released an app, “Service Forester’s Toolkit,” based off the 135-page Service Forester’s Handbook.

In addition to the facts and figures that appear in the original paper guidebook, the app contains calculators to help foresters determine soil texture, site index, basal area of trees, tree stand density and other figures.

The app is available in the Apple iTunes store. A version for Android is expected to be ready later this year.
