This residential field course is based in Freiburg in SW Germany. 6/7 days are spent visiting different forests and meeting German forestry professionals.
This is a joint course with Freiburg University and University College Dublin which allows you to share ideas with students who have studied in different institutions.
Visiting forests overseas challenges many assumptions of how forests should be managed and allows you to reflect on how culture and policy as well as forest type affect forest management.
