The population in the South is growing and changing, as is the climate. Forests are also changing, requiring new tools and technologies. At the Center for Forest Restoration and Management (CFRM), we study all aspects of forest ecosystems – tree physiology, silviculture, wildlife biology, timber harvest operations, and more. We provide knowledge and tools for preserving and enhancing the economic, ecological, and societal benefits that forest ecosystems provide.  

Six Research Work Units (RWU) make up this Center:
