Forest Resources ManagementIn sustainable forestry, our curriculum prepares students to balance the demand for forest products with the value of wildlands for recreation, wildlife habitat, and the protection of the environment. Students can also learn how to manage trees in our urban forests, as well as all the ecosystem benefits our natural environments provide. This program is accredited by the Society of American Foresters.
Be part of the only four-year forestry degree program in West Virginia accredited by the Society of American Foresters.
