Why Forest Resources?
One-third of the nation's land area and 40 percent of Idaho's land area is comprised of forests. With vast natural resources also comes the weighty task of managing the land responsibly.
Our forest resources graduates are asked to navigate this complex environment and balance the many demands placed on forests; from land development and forest products manufacturing and development to recreation and land preservation and water resources.
