About this event

This informative workshop will be lead by our fantastic volunteer Tadeusz. Tadeusz graduated from a 5 year university in Poland and is a fully qualified technician specialising in forest management. Along with a degree in horticulture he has spent many years studying and working within forests in Ireland and Poland and brings a wealth of information on forests and how to care for them.

Some of the topics covered are:

1. forestry structure and examples from the field, you will be guided through numerous areas of forestry.

2. In practice, recognize and describe forest trees and bushes.

3. A tip on how to avoid becoming lost in the wild.

4. The forest life cycle in action.

5. Encounters with forest insects: bark beetles, which are small, attractive, and devastating to forest monocultures. Description, structure, biology, and curiosity are all included.

6. The forest is gorgeous, but... perilous - this is something we must be mindful of when going and exploring through it.

Join this interesting forestry class beginning on March 26th and continuing every month to explore how we can conserve, use, and arrange forests.
