The Northern Research Station has realigned our staff from 37 Research Work Units and Programs into 14 new Research Work Units.
RWU-4151 is now part of NRS-2, Sustaining Forests in a Changing Environment.
To quantify and predict multi-scale forest ecosystem responses to environmental stress and develop management systems to provide healthy and sustainable forests.
Our staff of four scientists and six science support professionals are pursuing four primary areas of research at this time: 1) Global Change effects on tree and animal habitats, 2) Using fire, thinning and herbicides to sustain oak forests, 3) Predicting the spread of emerald ash borer, and 4) Wildland fire behavior, dynamics, and effects
Research facilities are also maintained at the Vinton Furnace Experimental Forest (VFEF) in McArthur, OH, and at the Raccoon Ecological Management Area, a 16,000 acre area surrounding the VFEF.
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.
