UAB Juodeliai participates in demonstrational-educational project of Christmas-tree and ornamental-plant farm

For the first time in Lithuania, a demonstrational-educational farm of Christmas trees and ornamental plants will be established in collaboration between three institutions: Kaunas College of Forestry and Environmental Engineering, Dubrava Experimental-Training Forest Enterprise and wood processing company UAB Juodeliai.

By signing a collaboration agreement the contracting parties confirm their joint attitude to cooperate in the Christmas tree business, deepen students’ knowledge, share available experience and, when possible, implement and help to implement joint projects, thus forming and strengthening the entrepreneurial skills of the students of Kaunas College of Forestry and Environmental Engineering.

The students of Kaunas College of Forestry and Environmental Engineering are not new to working in such an environment. Every year some of the students visit the Danish Christmas tree farm to work and do their internships there. This project will allow the college students to go on such internships in their home country and learn the basics of how to organize the Christmas tree business, integrating the business management and finance disciplines.

UAB Juodeliai is proud to contribute to the development of future professionals and their entrepreneurship in the forestry industry, and is happy to be able to participate in the unique collaboration project between the business and academic communities.
