Our 10,000+ acres of forestland provide rich and diverse opportunities for research across disciplines such as:

  • forest ecology and management,
  • biometeorology and climate,
  • wildlife population dynamics,
  • land-use history,
  • archaeology, and beyond.

The Yale Forests welcome research applications from faculty, students, and research affiliates from across Yale, and from other universities and organizations. Prospective reserachers should contact the Research and Extension Forester ( for additional information about working at Yale Forests, and submit an application.
