A lesson of 100 years ago guides the forestry program at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry: forestry is value-driven and science-based.

Recent changes in the professional program are driven by internal accountability, responses to the needs of potential students and their future employers, and shifts toward external funding.
