FORESTRY - Bachelor of Science
Forestry Program Mission and Goals
Whether you want to cruise white pine forests, plan timber harvests in stands of northern hardwoods, or develop disease resistant strains of elm, Paul Smith's College is the perfect place to explore your interest in natural resources and the environment. The Forestry B.S. program is accredited by the Society of American Foresters (SAF).
Depending on your goals, our four-year Forestry B.S. is designed to prepare you for careers in the broad and diverse field of forestry, including:
Ecological Forest Management: The management of public and private forests to meet diverse landowner objectives.
Forest Operations: The establishment, development, and sustainable harvesting of public and private forestlands.
Forest Biology: Graduate-school preparation in forest biology and ecology.
Graduates with a forestry B.S. in any of these concentrations may also choose to pursue graduate-level education in their fields of study.
Curricula for all concentrations are built around a strong, common forestry core that includes courses in forest ecology, silviculture, forest measurements, and wildlife management.
