The health of our forests has been my passion in research, teaching, and outreach. For over 20 years in Maine, I’ve continually been fascinated by the surprises and discoveries that are part of learning more about the forests. From investigations on how land use history affects the health of today’s forests to the evaluations of impacts of invasive species, the Maine forests always provide a fascinating source of new learning and knowledge. These field experiences bring a unique perspective to the class room and a better sense on what students need to learn to be successful.
There is no better place than the University of Maine for studying forest resources, and there is no better way to ensure the future health of our forests than to help our graduate and undergraduate students be successful during and after their studies.
