The field of forestry is often described as a mix of science and art. Blending the needs of landowners, industry and society with the characteristics and potential of the land is a complex endeavor. The history of forestry in the Southeastern United States is rich and exciting, and has led to one of the most ecologically diverse and economically important regions in the country. These two courses will provide an introduction to forest management concepts, practices and relevant issues.
