Our mission is to engage in high-quality research leading to the scientific and technological advances needed to sustain and enhance forest ecosystems and the full range of benefits they provide.
This Strategic Framework is intended to guide our direction for the future, and as such will change over time. Strategic objectives may be refined as the focus of our research evolves. Research work unit plans of work may be updated and revised as current research is completed and new areas of study are developed. SRS leadership team should review these objectives and plans periodically to ensure the strategic framework continues to serve as a living, relevant resource over time.
