Location

As stated in a previous section, when planning ahead tier? setting for training is important. A site located in an isolated area is helpful not only because that is where forestry techniques are best practiced, but because it reduces the trainees' desire to do other things, i.e., going to the movies, dancing, etc. The countryside has fewer distractions than a more populated area.

Available time is limited during the training. In selecting a site consider as critical the "time loss factor" in taking care of activities such as getting food, bathing and sleeping. The atmosphere of the training site directly affects participants' attitudes. If they have to spend time coping with the facilities, they are less likely to spend time productively during training.
