Welcome to M.Sc. Forest Sciences

Forests are becoming ever more important worldwide. They play a vital role in conserving natural habitats and biodiversity, provide us with the valuable raw material wood, and also often have a high recreational value. In order to conserve the forest ecosystem and its wide range of functions, forest management needs to consider ecological, economic, and social aspects in equal measure. Another global challenge is the impact of climate change on the world’s forests. Forests need to be adapted to meet changing climactic conditions, and they also function as a carbon sink.

Forest Sciences have a long tradition at the university of Freiburg. An exquisite teaching environment was created on the basis of excellent forestry research and unique natural facilities.
