The Department of Forest Management provides the foundation and tools necessary for ecologically and socio-economically sustainable management of forest landscapes. While our home is in the diverse ecosystems of Montana, our activities are global. We foster an intellectual atmosphere conducive to interdisciplinary teaching, research and service. Our educational program produces graduates with the knowledge and skills to manage the use, conservation and restoration of natural resources, while satisfying social, economic and ecological objectives. Our research and service programs develop and apply innovative techniques for management of forest, grassland and riparian ecosystems in an ever-changing world. We integrate research with our graduate and undergraduate curricula and prepare our students to assume leadership positions in management, educational and research organizations.
