Forest Measurements

Forest Measurements - NRT147

Forest measurement data support inventory and management planning decisions. In this course, field visits to varying forested ecosites on and off campus are conducted where students gain practical experience in the use of industry specific forest mensuration tools. Emphasis is placed on safe, consistent, and accurate data collection methods. Tree and plot tallies will be recorded in hardcopy and digital formats. Basic forest industry concepts and terminology are introduced and studied. Students will have guided access to sites that include a wide variety of tree species in both the Boreal Forest, and Great Lakes St. Lawrence Forest.
