Forests & Rural Lands Publications



In many parts of the world such as the Southeast U.S., forests are characteristic of the rural landscape. The CFS supports forest research that, among other things, looks at services provided by urban forests and how forests can be managed at the urban rural interface.

A list of CFS supported publications related to forests and rural lands is provided below.
