Description

Forestry is an applied science that involves managing forest ecosystems within increasingly complex social environments.

The University of Maine has the longest, continuously-accredited professional Forestry program in the United States. The four-year curriculum, accredited by the Society of American Foresters, retains a strong field orientation. In addition, students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the numerous opportunities for summer employment with public and private land-management organizations.
