Distance Learning Courses in Forestland Management

Distance-based education systems have the potential to address curriculum, employment, and land management issues. Several universities throughout the Northeast are developing Web-based courses in forestland management.

Specifically, in spring 2004, the following courses are being offered through associated universities:

  • Forest Hydrology (University of New Hampshire)
  • Forest Meteorology (University of Connecticut)
  • Forest Policy (State University of New York , College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF)
  • Forest Economics (SUNY-ESF)
  • Timber Harvesting (Univesity of Massachusetts-Amherst).

The universities will market these courses through continuing education to non-traditional students to ensure that contemporary information is available to consulting foresters, agency natural resource managers, state and federal outreach specialists, and land managers.
