Postgraduate Student Stellenbosch University
- MSc Forest Operations
My postgraduate research looks at the appropriateness of technology for small-scale grower forest operations. The Forestry Sector has witnessed amazing advances in technology over the last decade, the question is whether this technology applies to small-scale growers – if it suits their needs and can be utilised by them. I chose to work in forest operations because it is an area of forestry where I felt I could generate the knowledge that will shape the future of our Sector. I feel it is an area where were can play an important role in advancing forestry.
