Support the future of forestry

About this faculty

UBC Faculty of Forestry is Canada's largest forestry school and a global leader in education & research for conservation, forest products & natural resources.

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.

Faculty of Forestry Bursary Fund

Bursaries provide vital support for our students by reducing the burden and stress of finance constraints, while allowing them to concentrate on their studies and work towards achieving their goals, and reaching their potential in pursuit of becoming a Forestry professional.

Wild & Immersive: outdoor development programs for children and youth

The lack of outdoor time for children and youth is growing at an alarming rate and is taking a toll on their health and well-being. But it doesn’t have to be that way. At Wild & Immersive, we believe that every child deserves the chance to connect with nature and experience the wonder and benefits firsthand. When children and youth experience nature, engagement follows naturally.
