As our human population continues to increase, forests and other natural resources are valued more for the serenity they provide, the organisms they support, and the products they produce.

The faculty and staff of the School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science are committed to educating students to create the future in the fields of forestry, forest ecology and management, applied ecology and environmental sciences, wildlife ecology and management, and molecular genetics and biotechnology. All of our degree programs heavily emphasize field and lab techniques, geographic information systems, and, computer and quantitative skills. We excel at bringing all our students together to work as a team in our complex natural world to answer the needs of society.
