COURSES IN CONTINUOUS COVER FOREST MANAGEMENT

IRREGULAR SILVICULTURE IN THE LOWLANDS: TRANSFORMATION IN PRACTICE

Marking is a difficult skill to learn, particularly within an unfamiliar discipline such as Irregular Silviculture. This one-day Course provides an in-depth introduction to the practical application of irregular silviculture in coniferous and broadleaved stands. It incorporates a marking exercise in which the trainees, in groups of two, undertake the marking decision process for themselves within a one ha stand under transformation and interact with two experienced practitioners.

On completion of the marking exercise, the trees selected for removal by each group are inputted into a spreadsheet which provides a detailed summary of the silvicultural consequences of the each marking. These data can be compared between the groups and with the marking of a local manager. The Courses will be held on the Stourhead (Western) Estate, Stourton, near Mere, on the Wiltshire/Dorset border. The Courses are designed for 12 trainees and will be lead by Andy Poore and David Pengelly, both leading exponents of Continuous Cover Forest Management.

THE COST OF THE COURSE IS £230 PER PERSON (£192 + VAT).

Course Booking will be undertaken by Victoria Hughes, Silvanus Trust, 01752 846 400. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

A grant of 50% of the Course Fee is available for people working in private sector forestry and farming and living in the South-West Region.

COURSES WILL BE HELD ON TUESDAY 3rd APRIL and WEDNESDAY 16th MAY 2012
