Center for Research on Sustainable Forests Self-Study
- Weiskittel, Aaron
The Center for Research on Sustainable Forests (CRSF) was formed on July 1, 2006, with Dr. Bruce Wiersma serving as its first Director, following recommendations from a 2003 USDA Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service (CSREES) review that also resulted in the formation of the School of Forest Resources (SFR). CRSF was formed to better coordinate UMaine’s considerable cross-campus expertise on forest resources, as well as to increase interdisciplinary research collaborations on important issues facing Maine. The initial mission of CRSF was to conduct and promote leading interdisciplinary research on issues affecting the management and sustainability of northern forest ecosystems and Maine’s forest-based economy.
