Forestry at Clemson

Forestry education at Clemson began in 1903 in the department of botany and bacteriology. Today the Forest Resource Management curriculum resides in the School of Agricultural, Forest, and Environmental Sciences (SAFES) and provides a broad education in the arts and sciences with applied forest sciences and the necessary foundation for the scientific management of forest resources, products, and services. Clemson forestry students benefit from the Clemson Experimental Forest, which serves as a 17,500-acre living laboratory and provides unparalleled experiential learning and recreational opportunities for Clemson students and South Carolina citizens.
