  • Site Classification Research at Upland Hardwood Ecology and Management

    Scientists within the Upland Hardwood Ecology and Management Research Work Unit 4157, along with many collaborators and partners, have developed applied methods to assess site productivity for application to forest management and restoration projects within the upland hardwood ecosystem.
  • Research on Ancient, Big and Historical Trees of Arkansas at Southern Pine Ecology & Management

    Arkansas, as with much of eastern North America, was once covered by extensive virgin forests with many big, old trees. Logging, land clearing, wildfire, and urbanization, among other causes, have long since eliminated most of these big trees. However, a handful can still be found in the woods of Arkansas, and many others "live" on in historical photographs, explorer and survey accounts, and scientific publications.

  • ForWarn

    EFETAC and its sister Center, the Western Wildland Environmental Threat Assessment Center, are collaborating with federal and university partners to develop strategic research components for the National Early Warning System. These new tools help forest and natural resource managers rapidly detect, identify, and respond to unexpected changes in the nation’s forests impacted by insects, diseases, wildfires, extreme weather, or other natural or human-caused events.

  • Remote Sensing Applications Center

    The Forest Service's Remote Sensing Applications Center (RSAC) is in Salt Lake City, Utah, co-located with the agency's Geospatial Service and Technology Center. Guided by national steering committees and field sponsors, RSAC provides national assistance to agency field units in applying the most advanced geospatial technology toward improved monitoring and mapping of natural resources. RSAC's principal goal is to develop and implement less costly ways for the Forest Service to obtain needed forest resource information.

  • Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA)

    FIA is a USDA Forest Service research work unit which collects, analyzes and reports on data pertaining to our forest land in the southern region. This region includes Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, the US Virgin Islands, and Virginia.
  • Upland Hardwood Ecology and Management does Research on Forest Foods for Wildlife

    Scientists within the Upland Hardwood Ecology and Management Research Work Unit 4157, along with many collaborators and partners, study how fleshy fruit and hard mast availability varies among forest types and age-classes, seasonally, and over time as forests mature. We are also developing models and tools for land managers to assess acorn or fruit production capability of forest landscapes under different management scenarios.
