The forestry course doesn’t take place at the competition site but in a nearby forest. It contains tasks which has to be carried out in a team of four students (so one team per nation). The competition is performed on aproxmetly a 3 km long orienteering. Inside this area there are 16 control points, where competitors have to measure and count different forestry parameters:
Task 1: The age of the tree
The forestry course contains sixteen tasks which has to be carried out in a team of four students, so one team per nation/school. It doesn’t take place at the competition site but in a nearby forest.
Task 2: The height of the tree above the ground
Task 3: The number of the stems per hectare
Task 4: Basal area (m²/ hectare)
Task 5: Slope of terrain in %
The estimate of slope shall be based upon the height difference between the two marked points. Slope shall be calculated as a percentage from the horizontal distance (Exactness 1 %)
