Holmes to offer Introduction to Forestry online

Beginning this fall, Holmes Community College’s Forest Technology program is offering an online option for Introduction to Forestry.

The course, Forest Technology (FOT) 1813, is three credit hours and offered through Holmes eLearning. It is designed to acquaint the student with the role of a forest technician. Emphasis is placed on tracing the development of forestry in Mississippi and the United States, forestry techniques and practices, exploring educational and job requirements, and learning standard forestry terms. Students are also made aware of how forestry fits into the state, national and international scene.

“This course is not just for those in our Forest Technology program,” said Dean of Career Technical Programs Dr. Thomas Luke Jones. “It would be beneficial to any agricultural major. It would also be a great class for nontraditional students, such as a non-industrial private landowner who wants to become a tree farmer or a recent retiree who owns land.”

For more information, contact forestry instructor James Floyd at or (662) 227-2336. For information on all Holmes career-tech programs, contact Career Technical Counselor Leslie Spell at Interested students can also visit to learn more about Forest Technology.
