Registration is open for Oregon State University Forestry and Natural Resources Chile Forest Study Tour, November 2-11, 2014
Chile is a country of high mountains, dramatic coastline, deep forests, picturesque towns and dynamic cities. We'll taste most of these (and some wonderful Chilean wines) during our ten days together.
You will meet with small woodland owners and walk their lands, visit world class wood products facilities, step into stands of trees growing faster than you ever thought possible, and stands where you can name 14 species just within eye sight. Join us as we learn about one of the world’s most innovative forest sectors, a growing conservation movement, all the while digging into the rich history, culture, art and cuisine of Chile.
This Oregon State University Forestry and Natural Resources study tour is designed for woodland owners, forest managers and other natural resource professionals, students, and anyone else interested in learning about the forests and forestry in Chile, one of the world’s most dynamic and beautiful countries. Our 10-day tour will expose you to a varied cross section private and public forests, wood products facilities, communities, and Chilean landowners and managers. You will visit fast-growing plantations and native temperate rain forests, and gain an appreciation for the country’s culture, history and landscapes. You will come away with new ideas, new perspectives, and a better understanding and renewed appreciation for forest management in your home area.
