Forest operations engineering and management for pursuing truly sustainable forest resource utilization
Sustainable forest management begins with recognizing the interdependence among the environmental, economic, and social values that our forests provide, and acknowledging the need for balance among them. We intend to help achieve that balance for present and future generations by developing decision support tools for cost effective and environmentally friendly forestry operations using GIS, and analyzing forest road network and structure to minimize soil erosion and landslide risks as well as to protect forest resources and wildlife habitats.
