Aim of the course and learning outcomes:
Providing a body of knowledge on the theoretical foundations of design and function of technical equipment (hand tools, machinery and equipment), the specific types and patterns of functional deployment of the technology-production and work processes arboristických activities in the establishment and maintenance of green areas, taking into account biological factors, habitat, economic , social, health and safety at work, etc. Students will be acquainted with techniques and technologies in production processes related to forestry. Knowledge gained in the course may be used for informed decision-making and selection of appropriate professional and technological resources and processes across a range of activities carried out by the arborist in cooperation with forestry partners.
