From Forests Ontario… the Level 1 (September) and the Refresher tree (October) marking courses are now scheduled for 2018. They are offered by the Forests Ontario /Canadian Institute of Forestry collaborative under agreement with the Ministry of Natural Resources & Forestry.
A Level 1 Tree Marking Course will be held from September 10 – 14, 2018 in Huntsville, ON. There is a maximum registration of 24 participants. This course will provide training sufficient to allow people to function in a tree marking crew under the supervision of a more experienced person, and for successful candidates, following a Field Evaluation Audit, can lead to issuance of a Level 1 Tree Marking Course Certificate.
For those with limited forest management or tree marking experience to date, a series of Tree Marker ELearning Modules have been prepared which serve as a primer to help potential students meet the learning objectives of the Level 1 Tree Marking Course.
