Bachelor of Sience Forest Management (B. Sc.)
Forest management in the 21st century is an extremely modern production and service sector with a wide variety of tasks and social obligations. Sustainable forest management guarantees the preservation of our forests and safeguards their multiple functions. Various demands are placed on forests. Sawyers, for instance, see the forest with different eyes than hunters. The perception of somebody jogging or mountain biking will be different from that of a biologist or ecologist. These examples could be continued almost indefinitely. What they all have in common is that, despite different interests, they all make demands on the forest and want to preserve it. These various demands must be coordinated and their implementation organised. In addition to the local and regional approaches, global aspects must also be considered.
Forests significantly affect living conditions on our planet. In sustainably managed forests, the raw material wood is produced. Its properties are valued worldwide, for example in the form of timber, as paper or fuels or as part of many other commodities. The world’s forests make a major contribution to climate stabilisation and species protection. Responsible management through the sustainable use and protection of the resource “forest” is therefore called for. Sustainable, regulated forest management thus creates structures for the responsible use of forest ecosystems.
