Forestry Club at OSU is an informal social group that encourages interaction between different majors within the College of Forestry through intercollegiate events, guest speakers, volunteer work, and field trips. The club organizes and sponsors numerous intercollegiate events, such as a logging sports team, forestor's ball, woodcuts, forestry club olympics, charity events, ski trips, and outdoor recreational activities. The club also works closely with the College administration to assist with various College events.

A current and future aim of the club is to create a closer relationship to the local community by sponsoring charitable fundraisers and donations. The Forestry Club is rich in tradition and has provided many valuable experiences for its members outside the academic arena.

OSU was granted a charter by the Society of American Foresters (SAF) in the fall of 1980 to form a student chapter. Student members must be undergraduate or graduate students in programs closely related to forestry and natural resources. Both faculty and students are welcome.

The OSU SAF Student Chapter promotes professionalism in the field of forestry, encourages interaction between professional foresters and students, provides opportunities for taking part in active forest management projects, and helps educate the public about forest resources and their management. In addition, the SAF Student Chapter strives to build fellowship among students and provide an opportunity to openly discuss and debate forestry issues.

SAF activities include a job fair, managing a Christmas tree farm, hosting guest speakers, participation in community natural resource education, and travel to State and National SAF Conventions.

The society aims to secure and maintain a high standard of scholarship in forestry education, to work for the upbuilding of forestry, and to promote productive relations among earnest workers engaged in forestry activities.
