Description

An online introduction to the theory and practice of soil identification for foresters with one of the UK’s leading experts, Andy Moffat.

We are delighted to announce a repeat of our two hugely popular forest soils online training modules. The sessions will be limited to 30 delegates, to ensure that participants have plenty of opportunity to interact and ask questions.

  • 15 minutes on Online soil resources and soil investigation in the field/forest
  • 5 minutes Q & A
  • 25 minutes on Demystifying Ecological Site Classification (ESC)
