Preliminary Results Released: Southeastern Foresters’ Perceptions and Needs for Continuing Education

Southern foresters were surveyed to gain a better understanding of their experiences, perceptions, beliefs, attitudes and interests in continuing education topics and formats regarding climate science and climate change.

The survey provides insight into several inferential questions regarding a forester’s world-view and their associated receptivity to making forest management changes to increase resiliency. Information from this survey will be used to develop educational programs and tools that meet foresters’ interests and needs while accommodating different perceptions. This survey was conducted in collaboration with the Pine Integrated Network: Education, Mitigation and Adaptation Project (PINEMAP). PINEMAP is a USDA project that combines forestry research, education and extension teams to create and disseminate the knowledge to increase pine plantation resiliency in the Southern United States.  Full results of the study, available for state use will be located at   For more information about PINEMAP, visit
