Forestry Technology (Grenada Campus)
Instructor: Luke Jones
Forest Technology is an intensive program of instruction and training to prepare individuals for service in different aspects of forest management operations.
Major topics of the program include: the role of foresters in society; the identification and evaluation of forest and ornamental woody species; the manipulation of forest stands to produce specific benefits; the impacts of fire, insects, and disease in forest stands; forest measurement and mapping methods; and timber harvesting and utilization systems.
Emphasis throughout the program is placed upon developing strong communication skills through written and oral assignments and upon developing a professional attitude of conduct.
This program leads to an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree.
The Forest Technology Department will provide educational preparation for employment in forestry-related technologies, which will prepare the student for productive employment as well as provide opportunities for lifelong learning.
