Course content

Do you want to be involved in a land and resource management sector that exemplifies real growth and sustainable development? Are you interested in working in a dynamic and positive environment, making decisions that can affect landscapes, environments and timber production potential for decades to come?

Interest in forestry and forest products has never been higher as the economic, environmental and social benefits of woods and forests are widely-recognised in the minds of governments, scientists, businesses and communities.

Investment in forests and forestry is strong and continues to attract UK and global investors seeking the excellent returns and high environmental integrity that forestry offers. The forest management industry is actively seeking new management level staff to meet current and future workloads and development opportunities.

Global forest resources show both losses and gains in physical area and the policy and practice of forest conservation and protection has gathered pace and impact. New generation plantations offer the prospect to bring timber to world markets using faster rotations, advanced tree breeding, fully mechanised harvesting and greater technological input to planning and management of forests.
