We don't have a Forestry Department at present, but we still offer an
SAF-accredited B.S. degree in Resource Management with Forestry emphasis.

The madrone research was carried out at the Forest Products Laboratory,
which still exists ( phone: (510) 215-4200 ).  FPL is not part of the
department which teaches forestry -- it's a separate organization.
