The Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University is presenting a FSC Certification short course for forestry managers and contractors in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal from 11 - 13 May 2015.

With Forest certification growing globally in excess of 30% per year and more than 85% of the South Africa forestry industry FSC certified, it has become critical for all role players in forestry to fully understand the FSC certification process and how it impacts on day-to-day forestry operations.

The three-day course, to be presented by Michal Brink, will provide participants with a clear understanding of the Forest Management standard used in South Africa and the approach of auditors when verifying compliance to the standard.

With the onset of what promises to be a cold winter, this photo provides a timely reminder of what happens to wattle trees when it snows. No! It’s not a good idea to plant wattle if snow is a possibility. The only thing you could use these broken trees for is firewood. The photo was taken near Weza a few years ago.
