Student & Alumni Profiles
Junior in FNRM specializing in Park & Protected Area Management
"My passion for nature has been cultivated from a very young age. Ever since I was little, my family placed great importance on getting outdoors, whether it be for sports, picnicking, hiking, or just exploring."
Senior in FNRM specializing in Forest Ecosystem Management & Conservation
"I looked at a bunch of other schools just for forestry but other schools seemed more interested in their research and not in their students. When I came here they seemed really interested in their students. I felt a sense of community so I decided to come to the U."

Arborist with Branch and Bough Tree Service and Landscape Care in Minneapolis, MN
(specialized in Urban & Community Forestry)
"We see client education as part of our job. We don’t just tell them what maintenance we will do to their trees, but how and, most importantly, why we are prescribing this maintenance. The more people understand about how their trees live and what value they provide, the more people are interested in protecting and preserving them."
