Equipment & Personal Gear Supplied By Students

All students will be required to provide their own:

  • sleeping bag.
  • pillow.
  • towels, soap etc.
  • writing and graph paper, pencils, pens and drafting equipment.
  • field clothes – work boots, hard hats are mandatory during field work.
  • waterproof field books (e.g. Rite-in-the-Rain), plant identification books, course notes, reference manuals (e.g. Forestry Handbook), Slope Tables, and mensuration text.
  • Students will find their Ecology, Harvesting, Silviculture and Mensuration course notes useful.
  • Personal computer – if desired. There will be no computers supplied at the field school because we want to avoid students working on computers rather than concentrating on field work. You should bring power surge protection for your computer.
