In All That We Do, We Aim To Create A Better World

UBC Faculty of Forestry is globally-recognized for its award-winning educational programs, research and initiatives.

Home to some of the most innovative minds and approaches to the profession, our interdisciplinary team leads in forward-thinking research, education and community outreach that address some of the most pressing issues of today.

With an eye to expanding conceptions of forestry, our students receive inspiring and cutting-edge education from top forestry experts in a broad array of disciplines that prepare them to become global citizens and leaders in their chosen careers.

Located at UBC’s Point Grey campus on the traditional, ancestral and unceded xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Territory, we acknowledge the culture, history and traditions of the Musqueam and other Indigenous Peoples who have stewarded this land and its forests for millennia. We are grateful to learn, research and work inside the beautiful Forest Sciences Centre in Vancouver, in our research forests throughout the province, on Haida Gwaii, and in numerous locations around the world.

Together we are passionate about supporting the health and well-being of our planet’s forested ecosystems. Join us.
