Forestry and Natural Resources Department E-News

This is a periodic E-News for alumni, students, and friends of the department. We want to keep you posted on our program, students, and alumni activities. 

Kentucky Woodlands E-News

Kentucky Woodlands E-News is published by the UK Forestry and Natural Resources Extension group. This periodic E-News shares up-to-date information about programs and other items of interest to woodland owners, the wood industry, and those that want to learn more about the amazing woodland resource in Kentucky.

Kentucky Wood Industry E-News

The Kentucky Wood Industry E-News is published every other month and comes from a variety of sources; some will be original from University of Kentucky faculty and staff, but we will also draw from other universities and industry publications. We will often try to provide context or interpretation for an article to highlight how an issue may affect producers in our area, putting a local touch on news you may have already seen.

Certification E-News

Certification E-News is published by the Center for Forest and Wood Certification. This periodic E-News provides information regarding forest management, chain-of-custody, and point-of-harvest certification. Forest industry, woodland owners, or natural resources professionals with an interest in Forest Stewardship Council®, Sustainable Forestry Initiative®, American Tree Farm System®, or other certification schemes should subscribe.

Kentucky Maple Syrup E-News
