Competence Center for Silviculture
Silviculture is a core competence of foresters. To ensure knowledge and experience, encourage the transfer of knowledge and to develop the management of forests, our Foundation Council established the Center for Silviculture in 2011. Through a careful developmental process, we managed to choose two well-recognized specialists; Pascal Junod, forestry engineer and forester of Neuchâtel and Dr. Peter Amman, scientist with the cantonal forestry service of Aargau to head the center.
In a short period of time, the Center for Silviculture has taken firm roots on site in Lyss, which has also proven advantageous for our hitherto education programs.
The center for silviculture completes about 1000 days of advanced training courses per year, publishes papers and promotes practical exercises in tree marking and selection in so called marteloscopes (training aid for improving marking skills in continuous cover silviculture)
Our experts also work as consultants for projects relating to silviculture.
