If you are the one keen on Forestry, there is a great opportunity to come and explore the beauty and majesty of Czech woodlands. With the enormous diversity of vegetation, there is a chance to reflect underneath the ancient trees, touch the future in seedling nursery, or simply stroll and relax while admiring our woods. You will learn a lot about local forestry, techniques, and technologies from foresters,specialists, and professionals. Due to the size of woodlands covering about one third of the country, forestry is an integral and crucial part of Czech industry. In order to increase timber production, the composition of Czech forests was altered which resulted in today’s high share of coniferous species. These days, the trend is reverse – to increase the number of broadleaved species and support natural renewal. The country’s Forestry law is very strict with historical roots – very first Forestry law adopted by Maria Theresa, the empress. This tour is an unbeatable chance to combine study, exploration, and culture. Not only to discover woodlands with their fabulous fauna and flora, but also to explore the pulsing city of Prague, or enjoy Pilsner beer tasting.
