International Summer School on Forest Planning and Management: Training in New Tools and Techniques

19 - 23 June 2017, Waterford, Ireland

Organiser: EFI Atlantic and hosted by Waterford Institute of Technology

An international summer school organised by EFI Atlantic and hosted by Waterford Institute of Technology will be held in Waterford, Ireland on 19 - 23 June 2017. The focus of the summer school will be on providing background information, demonstrations and training in the use of the latest tools and techniques for assisting modern forestry professionals. The overall aim is to provide the very latest information and training in the wide the range of systems already available or coming on-stream that can help in making informed forestry management decisions at the tree, stand and property level. The course will include field work training with the latest field tools and techniques for assessing tree size and form, timber quality, stand quality and site suitability, and systems for mapping stands and forest properties over large areas using drones, aircraft and satellites. Hands-on laboratory sessions will follow to learn how these measurements can be used in conjunction with growth models, decision support systems on economics, risk and site quality, and information from National Forest Inventories and other publically available datasets. The workshop is primarily focussed at professional foresters, forest consultants, managers and owners, forestry policy makers, and postgraduate-level students.
