About this course
Forests are managed for a broad variety of goods and services, in an increasingly complicated context of changing climate, land use pressures, global markets, and conflicting cultural values. The aim of this program is to train foresters to work effectively on the emerging frontiers in forest management, with a skillset grounded in practical field skills and augmented by cutting-edge tools for geospatial analysis, multi-resource assessment, and finance.
The Master’s of Forestry integrates forest ecology and management within an educational program that also emphasizes related environmental fields.
