German students on exchange

THREE female forestry students from Munchehof School in Germany were welcomed on an exchange to the Barony campus in Dumfries.

The students in their third year of a forestry apprenticeship, joined SRUC Barony’s own students for a month and made full use of the facilities and equipment at Dumfries.
The trio particularly enjoyed learning about tree climbing and rescue techniques. They also carried out species identification, and the thinning of Sitka spruce.
