Hello and welcome! My name’s James and this is my Ohio Plants website, thanks for stopping by. I am a Forestry, Fisheries and Wildlife major here at Ohio State, specializing in Forestry and Wildlife. This is my first class involving plant identification, and I am exciting to better acquaint myself with my green neighbors.

On a personal level, I enjoy books and podcasts, tabletop games, and a mix of outdoor activities like backpacking, canoeing, and rock climbing. For my motto I chose, “Keep exploring,” to remind myself, not only to go new places, but also to try and to learn new things. For my symbol I chose a tree with myself and where I’m from at the roots, my motto on the trunk, and my major in the canopy. As I follow my motto I hope to expand my knowledge and experience in the field of forestry.
