Silvics Lab
UNBC Forestry - Silvics Lab

The ALRF’s Registered Professional Foresters enjoy every opportunity to connect with students and discuss forest and forestry related topics especially when the teaching occurs in the real world / experiential learning!

Silvics is the study of how trees grow, their habitats, regeneration/ reproduction methods, and responses to environmental factors.

Yesterday we had the opportunity be the guest speakers in UNBC’s FSTY209 Forest Biology and Silvics lab taught by Dr. Hugues Massicotte.  Mike gave a presentation on forest/urban interface issues, Colin led a snow shoe trek around campus, and Doug Thompson (UNBC EFL) led a discussion on forest seedlings.
