Nancy Hayes-Plazolles holds a long elm branchResearch developed by scientists with the Northern Research Station’s Research Work Unit 16 (NRS-16) and our partners is used by many stakeholders, from National Forest System managers to families owning a small woodlot to commercial forest managers. Understanding tree physiology, the role of fungi, and the insects and diseases that challenge forest health is a critical part to managing these lands for multiple uses today and well into the future.

Research Work Unit 16 includes 13 permanent scientists, 12 permanent professional and technical support personnel, and 2 permanent administrative support people located in Ohio, Connecticut, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Vermont.  In addition to our permanent staff, post-doctoral associates and technicians who are supported by grants are also part of the NRS-16 team.
