Theodore E. Howard
My research focuses on practical forest management and forestry economics issues of New England and its Canadian neighbors. I am specifically interested in small group selection systems in northern hardwoods and how to help landowners make better decisions about managing hardwood stands. In addition, I collaborate with colleagues in Japan and France on forest management and economics questions. One consequence of this international work is that I am marginally proficient in Japanese and French.
