Learn about the balancing act of managing land for timber production and wood products while considering wildlife habitat, recreational opportunities and water quality, with this Forest Resources Management program from West Virginia University.


The Forest Resources Management (FRM) curriculum at West Virginia University is a blend of scientific, technical and managerial knowledge professionals need to have in order to manage public or private forest resources. 

The students have ample opportunity to gain first-hand field experience through the five-week summer field practice, along with field laboratories associated with many of the courses in the curriculum.


The program has a very high job placement into industry and research programs. Upon graduation, students take professional positions as procurement foresters, timber buyers in the forest products industry, forest managers for private forestry consulting companies and landowners, as well as with state and federal land management agencies. 

Managerial work includes planning timber crop rotations; evaluating the economics of alternative forest management plans; and planning for integration of forest land for recreation, timber, watershed, wildlife and environmental protection. With experience and proven performance in these activities, professional foresters often advance to executive management positions in public forestry agencies or forest products industries.
