“I have a background in straight science so it was really interesting for me to do some forest management courses, looking at how you balance the ecologically best option with what’s applicable in the real world. ANU does a great job at that balance between science and society.

There are also lots of opportunities to go out on fieldtrips because in Canberra, you drive for ten minutes and you’re out in the bush.

We’ve done forest inventories, we’ve talked to farmers about Whole of Paddock Restoration, and we’ve also seen the forestry production cycle from seedlings to harvesting, to where the timber goes.”
