The Status and Future of USDA Forestry Research in the Great Plains

The number of USDA field units active engaged in tree-related research in the Great Plains has declined from nine to two in recent years, and funding is flat. Despite this decline in overall effort, the USDA Forest Service Unit in Lincoln, Nebraska is developing a novel research program of research on improvement of tree stress and pest resistance. In addition, a research and development initiative is being developed that will emphasize agroforestry systems that integrate tree windbreaks with conservation farming practices.
