Gain an insight into principles and practices of sustainable forest management

Timber is a versatile and widely used fibre-based commodity. In an increasingly interconnected world, decisions we make about production and distribution of this commodity can no longer be considered in isolation. Find out how modern forestry practices can allow us to sustainably meet our timber needs whilst ensuring that forests can still beenjoyed for many other values and how decisions we make in our society may have global consequences. Engage in field techniques employed by forest managers to determine sustainable timber harvests and treatment of stands to maximise production while maintaining or enhancing biodiversity.
