At the department we teach undergraduate students, educate and train postgraduate students, and offer postdoc positions within our many research subject areas. Research areas range from basic process understanding to practical silviculture and forest management. Most of our research deals with the boreal forest, however we also do research in the temperate and tropical forests of the world.

Education att all levels is based on ongoing research within the seven subject areas the department is responsible for. These are: 

  • Silviculture
  • Forest soils
  • Forest landscape biogeochemistry
  • Forest vegetation ecology
  • Forest ecophysiology
  • Forest regeneration
  • Forest history
