The Department of Forestry and Natural Resources produces much research and outreach material that is tailored to forest owners. Not all of our research needs end up in refereed journals that are intended for other scientists. Here you will find forest related publications along with a sampling of departmental publications that cover fundamental forestry topics, financial subjects for forest owners, and basic level forest science topics.
