Department of Forest Resources Management

To excel in education and research for the conservation and sustainable management of forests, woodlands, and wildlands.

The mission of the Forest Resources Management Department is to provide an outstanding education in forestry and conservation that is integrated, international, and experiential. We undertake significant, innovative research, and promote an interdisciplinary environment that attracts world-class scholars and graduate students. We engage indigenous peoples, in Canada and abroad, in their stewardship of forest lands. We foster public understanding of, and actively promote sustainable approaches to, regional and global natural resource and conservation challenges.
