The Northern Research Station has realigned our staff from 37 Research Work Units and Programs into 14 new Research Work Units.
RWU-4558 is now part of NRS-2, Sustaining Forests in a Changing Environment.
To increase our understanding of how biotic and abiotic stressors affect forest health, productivity, and regeneration and to assist in developing management practices that sustain multiple values derived from eastern forests.
Our research is focused on:
- Ecophysiology and pathology of forest regeneration
- Site and nutrient factors affecting forest health and sustainability
A staff of three scientists and three science support professionals work on these research problems along with partners and collaborators.
This site is under development as the Forest Service brings together the Northeastern and North Central Research Stations to form the Northern Research Station, serving the Northeast and Midwest. Check back often as we expand our site to reflect our combined commitment to supporting the natural resources and people of the Northeastern and Midwestern United States.
