Forestry Training Course Goal

As knowledge has grown, so has the importance and need to look at the ‘big picture’ not just in terms of physical space but also time. Technology now exists which enables planners and researchers to model the impact of operations over long planning horizons and extensive areas of land. This course examines this ‘big picture’ thinking and provides a survey of the methods used to make effective decisions in a changing environment. Anyone interested in the decision-making models for healthy forested landscapes will find this course helpful.
