The aim of the course:
Learning of wood raw material production processes and available methods, learning determination criteria of damage severity and type to residual stand, sampling ans forest soil, assessment to residual stand, To learn how to plan the wood production phase so as to minimize environmental damage
 
Programme OutcomesCTPOTOA
Upon successful completion of the course, the students will be able to :
PO - 1 : Understand the stages of wood production and the main techniques and technologies used in these stages
PO - 2 : Know the criteria for determining the type and intensity of the damages on residual trees, seedlings and forest soil of harvesting operations
PO - 3 : Ability to determine which type of damage may occur in which production process
PO - 4 : Decide the least harmful production technique to the environment for each production stages
CTPO : Contribution to programme outcomes, TOA :Type of assessment (1: written exam, 2: Oral exam, 3: Homework assignment, 4: Laboratory exercise/exam, 5: Seminar / presentation, 6: Term paper), PO : Learning Outcome

 
Contents of the Course
Wood raw material stage in the production process, The techniques and technologies used in wood production phase, Evaluation of damage types, classification, and severity on the residual trees, stand and forest soils, Assessment of environmental damage techniques and technologies used the wood production stages with respect to each.
