"I really enjoyed the Executive Education in Forestry course. In fact, it was one of the highlights of my federal career.

Lincoln Bramwell, Chief Historian for USDA Forest Service

Since its founding in 1900, the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies has been in the forefront of developing a science-based approach to forest management, and in training leaders world-wide.
The Global Institute of Sustainable Forestry established in 2000 continues this tradition. It's mission is to integrate, strengthen and direct the School's forestry research, education and outreach to address the challenges of sustaining forests in the 21st century and a globalized world.
