The Faculty of Forestry is a dynamic place where students, researchers, and the forest community can transfer knowledge and share ideas to meet tomorrow’s challenges. We value lifelong connections with our students and alumni, and we are constantly working on new ventures and innovative projects that range from conservation through to wood products processing that supplement existing programs and improve the forests for the people of British Columbia, Canada and beyond.
It is difficult to overestimate the importance of the world’s forests. By supplying wood, mitigating climate change, maintaining biodiversity and contributing to the livelihoods of over two billion people, forests play a critical role in the world’s economies and ecosystems.
Within the Faculty of Forestry, we undertake critical research, participate in community outreach, and educate graduates and undergraduates to meet this challenge. As a truly interdisciplinary Faculty, we want to be the nexus for ideas about forests and their goods and services; a place where ideas are turned into actions that benefit forests, the people who depend on forests, and all of humanity.
