About CRSF - History & Mission
The Center for Research on Sustainable Forests (CRSF) was founded in 2006 to build on a rich history of leading forest research and to enhance our understanding of Maine’s forest resources in an increasingly complex world. CRSF brings together the natural and social sciences with an appreciation for the importance of the relationship between people and our ecosystems. We conduct research and inform stakeholders about how to balance the wise-use of our resources while conserving our natural world for future generations.
Our mission is to conduct and promote leading interdisciplinary research on issues affecting the management and sustainability of northern forest ecosystems and Maine’s forest-based economy.
