Forest science

Skogsvetenskap är läran om skogen, skogens utnyttjande och skogsråvarans förädling. Skogsvetenskap är således en tillämpad vetenskap med inslag av bland annat botanik, ekologi, geovetenskap, teknik och ekonomi. Här ingår ämnena skogsinventering, skogsplanering, skogsskötsel, skogsproduktion, skogsföryngring, skogshushållning, skogsgenetik, skogsmykologi, skogspatologi, skogsteknologi och skogshistoria.
