Sustainability and productivity of southern pine ecosystems
Scientist at the Southern Research Station (SRS) have developed a means to address critical forest resource needs in the 21st century. Throughout the South, we are working with public and private land owners to face unprecedented natural resource challenges (United States Department of Agriculture, forest Service 1997). By providing access to research results and scientific discoveries, by developing useful technologies, and by responding to an ever-widening customer base, we are building on a 75 year tradition of leadership. That leadership will help champion the conservation and productivity of southern forest resources.
