On August the 20th, 2016, we began the day with interesting presentations by the Technical University Munich which tought us about their study programmes but also forestry research in Germany.
Afterwards we left Freising for the next item on the agenda: At the lake Almsee we joined two workshops. The first one was provided by Husqvarna Group. We got a quick introduction on Husqvarna and the required safety clothing of a forester. They had prepared three stations for us where we could test all kinds of Husqvarna products and equipment, like chainsaws and trimmers.
The second workshop led us on a guided tour on the ecology of the region with Markus Sommerauer, managing director from ANRICA (Austrian Natural Resources Management and International Cooperation Agency).
After dinner we attended another captivating presentation by Markus Sommerauer about ANRICA and on the topic of semi-natural forest management and its influence on the development of the rural area of Almtal.
Thanks to TU Munich, Husqvarna Group and ANRICA for this eventful and informative day!
