Forestry correspondence course offered in fall

July 18, 2006

Registrations are now being accepted for the fall semester of the General Forestry Correspondence Course, which runs from Sept. 1 to Dec. 15.

Work from home, using your own woodlot, a friend's or a public forest while learning the basics of forestry, forest ecology, and forest health in this non-credit course.

Find out how to protect your trees from insects, diseases and fire. Step-by-step procedures walk you through a forest inventory and stand analysis. Explore the details of the forestry business, including tax nuances and the sale and harvest of forest products. Ultimately, the course exercises help you develop a management plan for your forest.

As part of the $300 registration fee, you receive a General Forestry Correspondence Course text notebook, separate appendices packed with resources, plus additional supplemental readings. A certificate of completion is awarded when all assignments are completed.
