Chris Duncan - Graduated from BSc Forestry

Image of Chris DuncanAfter graduating from Bangor I was employed as a Forest Manager by Highfield Forestry Ltd, a small forestry management and investment company based in Perth. Along with one other forest manager, I am responsible for managing about 15000 hectares of predominantly commercial conifer forests from South Wales to the far north of Scotland.

I enjoyed my time at Bangor as the course offered a good range of modules covering all aspects of forestry as well as the wider environment. The mix of field and classroom based teaching made the course varied and inspiring. The staff were friendly, helpful and gave informative lectures based on both current research and first-hand experience.

I was fortunate to spend my placement year with Forest Research in Scotland which gave me valuable experience into the commercial forestry as well as making valuable contacts within the industry.
