Abstract

Panel discussions began with Gwaze providing a general explanation and history of National Advanced Silviculture Program (NASP). NASP is a graduate-level training in silviculture and forest ecology for USDA Forest Service employees seeking to be certified as silviculturists. The training is open to employees of other Federal and State agencies. NASP is conducted in collaboration with four leading academic institutions. To become a certified silviculturist, a participant should possess 3 years of related experience, participate in the four NASP modules as well as appropriate local modules (regional courses), and write and defend a silvicultural prescription.
