The Center for Research on Sustainable Forests (CRSF) was founded in 2006 to build on UMaine’s rich history of leading forest research and to enhance understanding of Maine’s forest resources in an increasingly complex world. Forest research and its application are rapidly evolving due to unprecedented availability of data provided by emerging technologies such as high-resolution digital imagery and GPS. With a mission to conduct and promote interdisciplinary research for the effective management and sustainability of northern forest ecosystems and Maine’s forest-based economy, CRSF seeks to lead in the development, integration, and application of emerging technologies to address current and future issues in natural resources.
