Forestry: Managing for the future.

Forestry: Managing for the future.
This issue of California Agriculture provides an opportunity to reflect on the past 100 years of forestry in California and the important partnership between our campus teaching program and the statewide UC Agriculture and Natural Resources (UC ANR) research and extension programs. All of the forestry faculty in UC Berkeley’s College of Natural Resources have appointments in either the Agricultural Experiment Station or UC Cooperative Extension (UCCE). They often work closely with the statewide network of UCCE forestry and natural resource advisors based in county offices and the UC ANR research and extension centers.
The articles in this issue show the range of research being conducted by the extended
UC forestry community. Two articles highlight work from our educational partners in the California State University system. As we embark on the next century of forestry education in California, it has never been more important that UC Berkeley, Humboldt State and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo — which host the state’s three accredited forestry educational programs —work together to educate a new generation of foresters. They will need a solid foundation to meet the high standards of California’s licensing requirements and work successfully under the close public scrutiny of forest management demanded by the California Forest Practice Act.
