Forestry Operations includes topics like health and safety, landing operations and processing, chainsaw safety and use, quality control, and how to safely operate a forestry machine. Forest Management includes topics like business planning, forest health and nutrition management, supply chain, harvesting and silviculture operations management, and environmental sustainability.
