A Bachelor of Science in Forestry (B.Sc.F.) is about trees, plants, water, and wildlife management – the atmosphere, soils, and landscapes. It’s about people’s beliefs and values. It’s about the economy and about spirit. B.Sc.F. is about managing all these in sustainable ways. It’s about solving complex problems for the benefit of current and future generations.

The B.Sc.F. program at UNB is one of the oldest in Canada and has been offered for more than 100 years. We have a deep history in producing graduates who are much sought after in the industry, and many have gone on to become leaders in the field.
