Studied tropical silviculture at Wageningen Agricultural College. His study was interrupted from 1947-50, when he was serving for his number in the army in the then Dutch East Indies. At first he was stationed in Celebes, subsequently at Batavia, and about mid-1948 transferred to Buitenzorg at his own request with the possibility to continue his agricultural studies there. He passed his final examination at Wageningen in January 1955 and got an appointment with the Dutch Forest Administration in Limburg.
