Australasian Timber - - NEWS -

THE GOTTSTEIN Trust is of­fer­ing a For­est Science Course in Fe­bru­ary 2015 that en­com­passes the top­ics cov­ered in forestry de­gree.This “taste of forestry” pro­vides any­body work­ing in the in­dus­try with an un­der­stand­ing of method and logic be­hind for­est plan­ning and is de­signed specif­i­cally for those who do not have a for­mal forestry back­ground.While cov­er­ing top­ics from “the im­por­tance of forestry world­wide” to “how to mea­sure a tree” the course is pre­sented in an in­for­ma­tive and in­ter­ac­tive way with dis­cus­sion en­cour­aged be­tween the pre­sen­ters and par­tic­i­pants.Lead­ing Aus­tralian au­thor­i­ties on each sub­ject have been ap­pointed to present their topic and do so with great en­thu­si­asm.

“Ex­tremely valu­able, very en­joy­able”, "Great range of top­ics and speak­ers. I learned a huge amount. Ex­cel­lent net­work­ing. I want more” and

“A very valu­able and in­for­ma­tive pro­gram for be­gin­ners in forestry”

These were some of the com­ments re­ceived at the con­clu­sion of the first Gottstein For­est Science Course held in Fe­bru­ary 2013.

The Gottstein Trust also runs a Wood Science Course in al­ter­nate years to the For­est Science Course.This week long Wood Science course is a good in­tro­duc­tion to the for­est and wood prod­ucts in­dus­try in Aus­tralia and cov­ers all as­pects of pro­cess­ing wood.The next Wood Science Course sched­uled for Fe­bru­ary 2016.

Gottstein Fel­low­ships, In­dus­try Awards and Schol­ar­ships to peo­ple work­ing or study­ing in the wood and forestry in­dus­tries are also of­fered an­nu­ally for in­di­vid­u­als to pur­sue projects that are rel­e­vant to them and to the in­dus­try as a whole.
