Department of Forest Resource Management

The Department is focused on multilateral cooperation combining expertise from our many research groups. This gives unique possibilities for creating holistic solutions for the sustainable use of natural resources.


We want our research to contribute in the development of the forest sector and the society, we also strive for a strong international competence.


The Department conducts bachelor's and master's education primarily within SLU’s Master of forestry program and we also provide PhD courses.
