WELCOME TO THE DEPARTMENT OF FORESTRY
The Department of Forestry teaches students how to nurse, cultivate and manage trees and forests. Students are taught to know the value of trees and the importance of forests to mankind and the environment. This knowledge and skills are imparted to our students through the teaching of some core forestry courses embedded in the Natural Resources Management (NRM) curriculum, such as silviculture, forest mensuration, forest economics, forest policy and land use, community forestry and rural development, urban forestry etc. They incorporate the need for joint forest management, tenets of climate change and the role of the public, individuals, families and corporate bodies in forestry development, both for social and economic gains.
In addition, the Department works closely with Sierra Rutile Ltd for rehabilitation of mined out land and Miro Forestry Company for recruitment of our graduates and technical purposes.
The following are the current operational programmes approved by the senate of Njala University:
