Comprehensive Silviculture Survey Training

Part 1 – 5 Days     Part 2 – 5 Days

This 2 part program is usually taken one immediately after the other, but may be separated as suits the participant based on their experience and schedule. It is intended for individuals with minimal to moderate levels of practical survey experience, who are looking for the opportunity to thoroughly discuss and practice silviculture surveys in both the classroom and field setting. This program is also well-suited to experienced practitioners wanting a detailed review in preparation for the accreditation exam. Many surveyors are more experienced in either field or office work. This 2 part program provides an opportunity for practice and review towards developing a sound understanding of all aspects of silviculture surveys.
