OverviewThis course should provide students with foundation knowledge of the basic principles of forestry. The topics covered will include forest genetics and tree improvement; seed factors and seed pretreatments; bare-root and container nursery practices; and planting stock quality. Methods of estimating stand volume using both the tariff and abbreviated tariff systems will be described. There will be several field study trips. Each student must submit a summary report for each field trip; the reports account for 15% of the marks for this module.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
