Program Strengths and Opportunities

  • Learn how to grow and utilize forests. The Forestry program of Michigan Technological University is one of the top three forestry programs in the state, home to a designated Model Forest. Michigan Tech works with public and private landowners, industry, and the University on projects that directly benefit forest health, and commercial and recreational use.
  • 6,500 feet of lab space, 2,000 of greenhouse, 5,397 acres of research forest.
  • If you are interested in production forestry, focus on bioenergy, biofuels, lumber supply and biomaterial production—management is the objective. There is also outstanding potential in forest restoration, in Michigan, and other parts of the world.
