Fresh out of quarantine, Dr. Robert Froese joined Dr. Brian Roth on a week long road trip through Alberta's forests. The first ever Endowed Chair in Forest Growth & Yield at the University of Alberta and the Forest Growth Organization of Western Canada Directo, respectively, visited study areas in the Sundre, Robb, Whitecourt, Grande Prairie, and Slave Lake areas.
The tour puts Froese in touch with the boot level concerns of forest managers as he builds a new research program at the U of A. But after a mandatory 2 week quarantine, it was just good to be back in the woods.
