APP China, Yangpu, China
This picture was taken during a stand verification trip in July during my co-op work term with APP China. The trip aimed to inspect the rectification progress of disqualified items before formal verification. At this point, I was feeling the weight of the chain saw, but there was still a long way before I could really use it. Co-op gave me an excellent chance to gain experience, and I appreciate that so much. During this work term, I had the opportunity to learn about a lot of information related to forest certification and forestry policy, which will be useful in my future studies.
