The St. Helena Forestry Association, organized over 13 years ago, is the ‘Voice of Forestry’ in the parish. 15 participants gained knowledge on forestry equipment, backpack sprayer calibration and forest herbicides while attending field days. 53 members and guests learned about feral hog biology, diseases and trapping at the association’s annual meeting. The $20 million industry accounts for approximately 11% of the parish’s Gross Domestic Product.
