Abstract: We prove that the dimension of the Specht module of a forest $ G$ is the same as the normalized volume of the matching polytope of $ G$. We also associate to $ G$ a symmetric function $ s_G$ (analogous to the Schur symmetric function $ s_\lambda $ for a partition $ \lambda $) and investigate its combinatorial and representation-theoretic properties in relation to the Specht module and Schur module of $ G$. We then use this to define notions of standard and semistandard tableaux for forests.
