Our mission: To define and apply chemistry, materials science, forest management, and engineering principles to the characterization and utilization of southern forest resources for maximum societal benefits with minimal environmental consequences.
The Utilization of Southern Forest Resources research work unit (SRS-RWU-4704) is part of the Forest Restoration and Management science area of the Southern Research Station. We are headquarted in Pineville, LA, with research teams also based in Blacksburg, VA, and Athens, GA. Learn more about our research →
