Forestry: An Overview
From Sarah Schaier
UNH's interdisciplinary forestry degree program focuses on sustainable management of forests for productivity, health and biodiversity. Forestry graduates help answer major environmental challenges involving climate change, sustainable development, resource management and biodiversity protection, and they work to protect and restore forest ecosystems, assure a sustainable supply of forest products, provide wildlife habitat and recreational opportunities and care for soil and water resources. The bachelor of science in forestry at UNH is a professional degree accredited by the Society of American Foresters and is one of four accredited undergraduate forestry programs in New England.
