Overview

This course aims to provide an overview of the methods of measuring the tree resources present in the forest. Going by the adage "whatever cannot be measured, cannot be managed," the estimation of the tree resources becomes crucial for managing a forest. It is important whether the forests are to be managed for commercial purposes such as wood production and energy production, or for non-commercial purposes. Forest biometry forms the foundation for the preparation of working plans that are technical documents for the working of any forest in India. The course will not only focus on the theories of measurement, but shall also provide an overview of the instrumentation basics of various equipments used for the purpose.


Intended Audience
