Publications & Products

Each year the Forest Service collaborates with scientists in partner institutions to write and publish thousands of peer reviewed publications in hundreds of scientific journals plus books, conference proceedings, and Forest Service reports. Each of these scholarly publications is available for free in the Treesearch collection of publications, now offering over 39,000 full text documents. Find the publication you want using either the "classic" search tools in the Treesearch website or through the new GeoTreesearch tool, which puts a geographic slant on your search of those same publications.
