Hello. We are Riido Klimenko and Mikk Pern
We are in Austria for practice and come from Estonia. We study in Luua Forestry School and they teach there 3 different subject fields Forestry, Landscaping and tourism. We study forestry and you can study it after 9th or after 12th grade. After 9th the length of studying is 3.5 years and after 12th its 2.5 years. We picked Austria for practice because the landscape is completely different than in Estonia. Here the highest mountain is bigger than 3000 meters but in Estland the highest mountain is 300 meters and most of it is flat.
We have worked a little in your forests by now and it is almost harder to get things done with all the walking uphill and downhill. Also some of the big machines you use are different, like we don`t use cablecranes anywhere in our forests and mostly harvesters and forwarders do the job when the land isn`t too wet for them. But here in Austria we wish to get some overview on the Austrian Forestry system, Also experience new things and get more knowledge over forestry in different countries. As we haven`t been in Austria before we would love to see more of your culture and people. Too bad we have to leave this sunday, we really like Austria and the people here seem really friendly.
See you around the School.
