The Rocky Mountain Research Station is one of seven regional units that make up the USDA Forest Service Research and Development organization – the most extensive natural resources research organization in the world. We maintain 12 field laboratories throughout a 12-state territory encompassing the Great Basin, Southwest, Rocky Mountains, and parts of the Great Plains.
Our research program serves the Forest Service as well as other federal and state agencies, international organizations, Tribes, academia, non-profit groups, and individuals. Research results and products are made available through a variety of technical reports, journals and other publications, and via web sites, webinars, seminars, symposia, demonstrations, exhibits and personal consultations.
Our work helps resource managers and planners balance economic, social and environmental demands for forest and rangeland resources worldwide.
