Abstract/ Summary

2011 marks the end of the first five years of the Center for Research on Sustainable Forests (CRSF). Our Founding Director, Dr. G. Bruce Wiersma retired this year, having built a solid foundation upon which to grow. Under the leadership of Director Dr. Robert Wagner, the CRSF team engaged in a year-long visioning process, which resulted in a new plan to provide cutting edge research and outreach about Maine’s forest resources. CRSF has now reorganized into three flagship programs: Commercial Forests, Family Forests, and Conservation Lands. In addition to these research initiatives, CRSF hosts the Northeastern States Research Cooperative under the United States Forest Service. With these programs and our myriad other initiatives and partnerships, CRSF now leads sustainable forest research in the State.
