Course Goal

This course is designed for a wide range of people with an interest in the forest sector. Participants will not need a background in forest management to understand the concepts that are presented. People who are working in the industry and understand many of the operational controls will benefit by seeing the broader framework under which forests in Alberta are managed.

  • Understand why we log and how important forestry is to our economy
