1 The required one credit of "Problems: Forest Resources" will serve as a cap-stone project that will establish the students ability to integrate multiple product considerations associated with forest management. This course will require the student to work with a professor with expertise in forest resource management to develop a professional paper regarding a multi-faceted forest resource topic of the student's choice. This paper will also be orally presented and discussed with a group of professors with interests in forest management.
