Building Bridges – How Modern Forest Operations are Supporting Sustainable Forest Management

May 14, 2020

The field of forest operations in Canada is rapidly changing, the discipline has evolved significantly and today’s forest operations have become a bridge-builder between different disciplines to support sustainable forestry practices in Canada.

Join us for the first webinar of our Faculty of Forestry Series, hosted by Dr Sally Aitken, featuring Dr Dominik Roeser, Professor in the Department of Forest Resources Management. 

Dr Roeser’s presentation will provide a vision for forest operations of the future and feature recent research highlights in forest operations at UBC. Highlights of the presentation include virtual reality in operational planning, fuel supply for small-scale combined heat and power installations, safety in steep slope harvesting, and a pathway to more commercial thinning operations in BC.
