Understanding and managing our multifaceted forests.
Forests cover one-third of the nation's land area and 40 percent of Idaho's land area. With such vast natural resources comes the need to manage the land responsibly.
In this program, you will build the science-based knowledge for sound management of forest resources. You will study topics such as forest management and operations, disease and pest control, forest hydrology and ecology, geographic information systems, wildland fires, forest inventory, and more.
As a graduate of this Society of American Foresters accredited program, you will be prepared to balance the many demands placed on forests: from sustainable timber production and biomass for forest products, to recreation and wildlife habitat conservation, providing clean water and other forest ecosystem services.
