Forest Service produced glossaries are well-known as high quality, authoritative resources which serve as standards and guidelines for technical terminology.
Now, through a cooperative project between the National Agricultural Library and the National Forest Service Library, these valuable glossaries are available on the web, with enhanced accessibility features.
You may search for a specific term within the glossaries, or you may alphabetically browse glossary terms.
The following glossaries are currently available:
- Wildland Planning Glossary
- Wood Handbook Glossary
- Silvics of North America
of Terms Used in Timber Harvesting and Forest Engineering
We welcome your suggestions! Please send us an email listing any additional Forest Service-produced glossaries to be considered for inclusion in this project.
