Description of Forestry
Forestry is the profession of sustainably managing forestlands to meet society's demands for wood, clean water, wildlife habitat,
recreation, conservation of forest flora and fauna, and climate amelioration. The nationally accredited Forestry curriculum provides a
firm understanding of forest ecosystems, the way people view and utilize the forest, and management tools and concepts applied in
forest management. The curriculum stresses "hands-on" field experience, teamwork, and developing critical thinking skills through
problem analysis. The Warnell School of Forestry & Natural Resources is one of 52 programs nation-wide accredited by the Society
of American Foresters. It is widely regarded as one of the top five forestry programs in the country. The graduate from this major will
be a professional forester responsible for the resolution of competing uses of the forest and forest resources, and for the management
of healthy, productive forests in meeting the owner's objectives.
