Although a single unit cannot hope to capture and excel in all of the many activities that constitute "forestry", we are fortunate to be a research-driven Faculty, based in one of the world's great universities, located in one of the most beautiful and forested provinces in the still highly forest-dependent country of Canada. We will continue to serve society, in British Columbia, Canada and throughout the world by improving our capacity to deal with the many facets that constitute forestry. We will do this by offering educational programs ranging from short courses to advanced doctoral degrees, through research on an array of topics from sociology to molecular biology and through direct professional service to government, industry, First Nations bands and private, non-government organizations. Over the past year or so, the University developed an Academic Plan that provided guidelines for faculty and staff in the building of academic plans for their own units. These unit plans will influence, among other things, hiring decisions, program development, and infrastructure support. As part of the process of formulating our plan, we held a retreat in February to get Faculty issues on the table and to define our structure and future plans. Prior to this retreat wc had struck two major committees, one dealing with "operational" issues and one dealing with "vision" issues as well as five sub-committees focusing on recruitment, learning technologies, communications, community, fundraising and coop/ extension. One outcome of this planning process has been the development of a collective vision for the Faculty. W e believe that: The Faculty of Forestry at UBC is a world-leader in the creation, synthesis and transfer of the knowledge necessary for the sustainable use, management and conservation of forests and other multiple products. By providing students with an outstanding and distinctive education and by conducting leading-edge research, we contribute to the continued development of a society that is environmentally sensitive, socially responsible, internationally competitive and, above all, knowledge-based. At the retreat there was a general consensus that, to achieve this vision, we will: • Create a culture of innovation, excellence, adaptation and inclusion in teaching, research and management. • Promote outstanding research. • Establish a leadership role in dealing with regional and international "forestry" issues. • Shift our main emphasis from a multidisciplinary (individual) to an interdisciplinary (team) approach. • Broaden the education function beyond our students and the forest community to include a broader community interested in forests.  The various subcommittees identified some specific goals. The recruitment committee focused on ways to maintain our undergraduate and graduate enrolment numbers while finding ways to enhance the quality of our students and their educational experience. The communications committee recommended that the Faculty take a lead role in the acquisition and dissemination of information on forestry issues, not only profiling the leading edge research carried out by the members of the faculty and their associates, but also providing an impartial forum to encourage constructive debate on contentious issues such as land claims, forestry practices, biotechnology, etc. It was felt that we should be using all of the tools within "learning technology" such as the student/problem-based learning which has been successfully incorporated into many of our undergraduate programs and through the use of other mechanisms such as distance education. This would allow web-based courses to reach students in more distant places while pursuing partnerships with other internationally recognized institutes of learning to both achieve a critical mass of students and the synergistic benefits of course development and exchanges. We have unparalleled opportunities to define what we mean by our "community", with many of our alumni filling the ranks of organizations such as the Association of British Columbia Professional Foresters and the recent establishment of the Aleza Lake Research Forest (in partnership with the University of Northern British Columbia) allowing our, now three, research forests to reach directly into the communities of B.C. Under fundraising we recognized the need to develop scholarships to attract the best undergraduate and graduate students while providing catalytic funds for initiatives such as the rebuilding of the Loon Lake camp at the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest and the support of highly successful programs in areas such as wood products processing and conservation biology. The addition of a full time development officer, Sheila Biggers, will greatly enhance our capacity in this area. Sheila comes to us from the Faculty of Commerce and she has nine years experience in managing, marketing and fundraising.  2000 Annual Report  1  DEAN'S MESSAGE  Two particularly noteworthy outcomes of the planning process that were catalyzed by both the "learning technologies" and "coop/extension" committees were the recommendations that we develop both a Faculty-wide coop option for all our undergraduate students and a professional masters program (course-based) with a strong "MBA" bias. The Wood Products Processing program (WPP), which has been in existence for the past four years and which continues to have a 100 per cent student placement, has shown how beneficial a coop option can be. These benefits include increasing the practical experience of the students while providing an opportunity for the employer to assess a potential employee and encouraging employers to provide feedback to us about the quality and relevance of the students' training. We plan to offer coop variations of the highly successful W P P coop in our four other undergraduate programs. During the past two years, the Wood Science Department evaluated a non-thesis (professional masters) program in Fibre and Wood Research and Education in Science and Technology (FAWREST). A follow-up survey to this initiative indicated that both the potential employers and the students wanted a greater emphasis on the so-called "soft skills" (e.g. problem solving, communications, teamwork, etc.) and the incorporation of further business and commerce options within the courses offered. Over the next few years we hope to develop several areas of emphasis within a professional masters degree that can be offered to our own successful forestry graduates and as a means of attracting graduates from other disciplines (science, engineering, etc.) into Forestry. As well as looking to the future we have had another productive year as indicated in the table below.

''Endowment income separated from extramural income from 1996/97 onwards. :  This past year graduate student enrolment maintained its upward trend with a total count of 231 students. Our number of international graduate students, representing more than 33 countries, increased by ten students from the previous year. We observed a slight increase in the number of female graduate students who represented 41 per cent of our Masters and 30 per ccnt of our Doctoral enrolment. Graduate student support increased by 24 per cent. Over the year, 43 graduate students successfully completed their programs, 8 at the Ph.D. level and 35 at the Masters level. Our undergraduate enrolment, at 508 students, dropped for the second year in a row. However, we welcomed our largest number of visiting and exchange students to date and we had our largest graduating class yet from the Wood Products Processing program. This past year also saw the implementation of the first year of our new program in Forest Resources Management and we are now ready to proceed with implementing changes to the second year of the program.  2  UBC Faculty of Forestry  Wc hosted over 55 students from 13 countries in the Faculty who participated in our exchange program. W e also had 37 students from UBC Forestry participate in a variety of international experiences including student exchange, international work internship, intensive short courses and webbased international forestry courses. The Faculty has also been involved in a number of international training programs that have brought 17 scholars from five countries to the UBC campus. We recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations to strengthen the collaboration and opportunities for faculty and students to become involved in the international issues central to F A O ' s vision. Last year the Faculty raised over $380,000 from our alumni and friends. These funds were used to support students' awards, programs and research. We plan to continue to establish and prioritize fundraising activity to support the Faculty and University visions. Research highlights of the year included the award of a Tier I, Canada Research Chair in "the application of forest simulation to help frame public policy" to Dr. Hamish Kimtnins. This was one of only a few chairs awarded to UBC in the first year of this program and it recognises the international calibre of chair recipients. Earlier this year, Dr. Sally Aitken established the Centre for Gene Conservation within the Faculty. She will look at issues such as the development of a comprehensive gene conservation strategy for B.C. forest tree species, genetic aspects of certification and genetic diversity and optimal conservation strategies for a variety of species. Our faculty and students had another productive year as evidenced by the maintenance of our extramural funding, only second to medicine at UBC when compared on the basis of full-time-equivalents of faculty members. We continued to maintain our high level of productivity as evidenced by the number of faculty publications and the number of graduate degrees awarded. During the year we were able to recruit several excellent people including Dr. John Richardson to a full-time position in the Department of Forest Sciences, and Dr. Michael Meitner into the Department of Forest Resources Management. We welcomed Gordon Prest back to the Faculty as coordinator of First Nations Forestry. This year also marked the final official year (prior to retirement) for the Faculty of Forestry's first ever Ph.D. graduate student, Dr. Tony Kozak. Tony is very much a part of the "bricks and mortar" of the Faculty and was one of the members of the "Sopron Infusion" that so greatly enriched the forestry community of British Columbia.  Plans for 2001/2002 The year 2001/2002 is a banner year for us as we celebrate the 50 ,h anniversary of the Faculty of Forestry at UBC. As part of these celebrations, we will be hosting a series of "current forestry issues" public lectures for our local community. Follow our web site (www.forestry.ubc.ca) for an up-to-date listing of 50 lh anniversary events. The Malcolm Knapp Research Forest is hosting the Coastal Silviculture Committee summer workshop for two days in June and the Western Research Forest Managers conference in October of 2001. In August, wc will be hosting (jointly with IUFRO) the "Forest Modelling for Ecosystem Management, Forest Certification and Sustainable Forest Management Conference". Drs. Valerie LeMay and Hamish Kimmins will be co-chairing the conference. We will be recruiting for replacements to retirees Drs.Tim Ballard and Tony Kozak, and beginning the process of looking for replacements for Drs. Karel Klinka and John Barker. We also hope to develop faculty partners in resource economics, First Nations issues and a variety of other areas described in each of the departmental unit plans. Finally, I want to thank Dr. George Hoberg for taking on the role of head of the Forest Resources Management Department as of July P', 2001 and also thank Dr. John Nelson for his sterling work as acting head for the past 2Vi years. We hope to shortly fill the position of head of Wood Science and finalise the other senior management positions within the Faculty during the next few months.

V4R 2R3 Phone: (604)463-8148 Fax:  (604)463-2712  HE Faculty of Forestry operates two Research Forests: the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest (MKRF) near Maple Ridge on the coast, and the Alex Fraser Research Forest (AFRF) near Williams Lake in the central interior of B.C. The mission of the Research Forests is to support the Faculty of Forestry in serving the people of B.C. through teaching and research. This is accomplished by hosting research from a wide variety of disciplines, in order to create teaching opportunities for students from UBC, other post-secondary institutions, and continuing education programs. The location of the forests, covering five biogeoclimatic zones and three tenure systems, offers a wide variety of research and education opportunities. The Research Forests host three field schools for UBC students: the fall field course for third year students at Alex Fraser Research Forest; a spring field course for fourth year students at Malcolm Knapp Research Forest; and sections of the conservation field course which are held on both forests. Facilities to house students at the Research Forests have been at or above capacity for several years during our recent peak in undergraduate enrolment.  A C H I E V E M E N T S IN 2 0 0 0 - 0 1 • Re-acquired management control of the Loon Lake Camp at MKRF, and began redevelopment into the Loon Lake Outdoor Education Centre. The camp will now operate as an ecotourism resort in a working forest, providing research and teaching opportunities in forest recreation. • Completed the development of the Aleza Lake Research Forest Society, in cooperation with UNBC. John McLean and Ken Day represent UBC on the Board of Directors. • Initiated management planning and harvest rate calculations on both AFRF and MKRF. At M K R F significant work has been done to update history records from past harvesting and silviculture activities, so that accurate yield analyses can be completed. • Created a public advisory group for (he MKRF. • Harvested a combined total of nearly 50,000 nr from 155 ha between the two forests. Commercial thinning at M K R F and mountain pine beetle salvage at AFRF featured strongly in the harvesting program.

Operating  budget, extramural funding  and research activity 1980/81 -  Our research funding for this year is listed on the following pages. A review of these research areas shows the wide range of subjects addressed in the Faculty. The basic forest sciences continue to be well supported and include molecular diagnostic techniques. Several studies draw on the resources of the Genetic Data Centre, as well as the Centre for Forest Gene Conservation. There is increasing interest in managing mixed species stands and this poses challenging problems in growth and yield studies as well as continuing studies of the diversity of other organisms that occupy these more complex ecosystems. Extensive research on the ecology of these stands, nutrient cycling, decomposition, as well as insect and disease impacts are being incorporated into increasingly sophisticated models. Watershed management, slope stability, riparian zone management and protection of diversity are additional topics that are being investigated. Sophisticated modeling and visualization capabilities in the Collaborative for Advanced Landscape Planning are being developed and applied in several studies, improving our ability to communicate and design management options as well as cultural/spiritual values of First Nations and other communities. Wood products research is focussing on the production of stable long lasting wood products through improved drying techniques including the application of RF techniques. Quality assurance programs developed for high speed processing centers help to improve returns per unit processed. Detailed property profiles for various wood species are under development to ensure that Canadian products are acceptable in world markets.  2000/01  In addition, we also received endowment income of $1,330,053, up slightly from our 1999/00 value.

David Cohen Interim Director  T  HIS has been a year of change and consolidation for the Centre for Advanced Wood Processing. Darrell Wong, our associate director, left to pursue research opportunities at Forintek Canada Corp. In October, 2000, Dr. David Cohen was appointed interim Centre director following Dr. Simon Ellis' year as acting director and Dr. Thomas Maness' four years as founding director. Our first five years were devoted to developing the physical infrastructure and contributing to the Department of Wood Science's undergraduate program in Wood Products Processing. The next five years will focus on continuing support for the undergraduate program, expansion of continuing education activities and the development of research and graduate studies. In 2000, our focus has been on filling vacant positions, establishing a stronger national presence and promoting partnerships with colleges and universities across Canada to fulfill our national mandate. In this past year we have reaffirmed our close tics with Fachhochschule Rosenheim in Germany with visits between both institutions by faculty and directors. We also laid the groundwork to shift industry advising activities from the very supportive advisory board of the National Education Initiative to the smaller advisory board originally approved by the UBC Board of Governors. The NEI board will become a National Sector Council and continue its linkages with C A W P and the undergraduate program.  • The Facilities As part of our mandate to maintain a state-ofthe-art lab there was renewal in the high head machine lab. Several pieces of equipment were replaced with the latest and most advanced equipment possible, as well as adding to equipment available for teaching and research. The Centre's most basic woodworking machines, the jointer, planer and shaper have been replaced with equipment that is state of the art in terms of safety, noise abatement and accuracy. Our Homag edgebander was replaced this year with an NC controlled, user friendly machine on loan from SCM. The newest piece of equipment, a four sided planer, is on loan from Martin Woodwork  jyjLcentre If  for  Wood  Advanced Processing  • Co-operative Education With strong support from the advanced wood processing industry, we continued our success rate of 100% co-op placement. While most placements are national, international placements exposed students to Japanese manufacturing teams, New Zealand's forest plantation management and large scale U.S. manufacturing.  • Continuing Education & Extension Almost 30 workshops and events were offered, with the majority being delivered off campus to maximize accessibility to industry participants. C A W P ' s Kiln Drying Program is now well established and has gained widespread industry recognition throughout B.C. This year the program was expanded to five modules. A major conference on wood finishing technology was held in Atlanta, Georgia, attracting 120 delegates from leading Canadian and U.S. wood products companies. In addition, C A W P offered practical wood finishing workshops utilizing our new finishing lab facilities. The next focus for continuing education is to expand the program nationally—CAWP is now developing partnerships with institutions and industry groups throughout Canada.

Some recent and upcoming highlights include: "Global Vision for the World's Forest to 2050 Meeting" took place in October 2000 and brought together 52 people from 24 countries to discuss how a global vision for the world's forest could be developed. This meeting was the third in a series of discussions and was supported by the World Bank/World Wildlife Fund Alliance. The event was coordinated in conjunction with the Liu Centre for the Study of Global Issues at UBC. Gary Bull was lead organizer for the Faculty of Forestry. For more information on this initiative sec the website: www.oneforest.org/. The " Forest Modelling for Ecosystem Management, Forest Certification, and Sustainable Management Conference", jointly organized by UBC Forestry and the International Union of Forestry Research Organizations will be held at U B C ' s Forest Sciences Centre on August 12-18, 2001. Valerie L e M a y and Hamish Kimmins are co-chairing the conference. Sec the website: www.forcstry.ubc.ca/.  • International Training Programs The Faculty of Forestry frequently receives requests to present and coordinate international training programs and tours for scientists from around the world. In order to meet the increasing demands of these requests, which we believe arc essential to the internationalization of the Faculty, the international programs office will be establishing an International Training Program, which will make available short term, intensive programs or "modules". These modules will draw from the expertise of our faculty and highlight the current research taking place within the Faculty. We are looking forward to making these programs available beginning in September 2001.  A C H I E V E M E N T S IN 2 0 0 0 - 0 1 •  Filled the First Nations coordinator position vacated by Madeleine Maclvor as of August 1, 2000 with Gordon W. Prest.  •  Developed a First Nations Strategy to identify the role and approach the Faculty of Forestry can play in aboriginal post secondary forestry education.  Gordon W. Prest Coordinator  A / i f o  fa  1  am very pleased to return to this position after an absence of three years to carry on the important work on First Nations initiatives with the Faculty of Forestry. Until rcccnt times, First Nations people have been mainly excluded from the forest sector due in part to the lack of understanding and recognition of aboriginal rights and title in this province. This has resulted in First Nations issues and perspectives not being properly addressed in post secondary forestry education programs. However, with eventual resolution of the aboriginal land question through the courts and (he treaty process, First Nations will be much more involved at all levels of the forest sector. Currently, with less than ten First Nation foresters registered with the Association of B.C. Professional Foresters, there is an obvious need to increase these numbers to meet the challenges to be laced by First Nations and the province as we enter the 21 s ' century. In order to meet these challenges, the Faculty of Forestry, through the First Nations Council of Advisors, is developing a First Nations Strategy. The strategy will identify the role and approach that the Faculty can play to achieve the following strategic goals over the next 5 to 10 years: •  Develop a recruitment plan to graduate at least 100 First Nations students with a B.S.F. degree by the year 2010.  •  Develop a learning environment to increase knowledge and understanding within the Faculty of Forestry on First Nations issues and perspectives.  •  Incorporate relevant First Nations content into the curricula to prepare students to more effectively address aboriginal rights and title issues and policies as future forest managers.  •  Hire a lull time faculty member: to develop culturally relevant curricula into the programs; to teach and offer academic support for students involved with First Nations research projects; to assist the Crown to incorporate First Nations perspectives and traditional ecological knowledge into current and future forest policy development as we move towards the post treaty era.  FIRST NATIONS  •  Currently 20 self-identified First Nation students in the undergraduate B.S.F. degree programs; two students in Masters degree studies and one student as a Ph.D. candidate.  •  Accessed funding from the Aboriginal Post Secondary Special Project Fund with Ministry of Advanced Education, Training and Technology to initiate a First Nations recruitment and retention plan.  •  Purchased artwork for a First Nations Forestry logo entitled "Protectors of the Forest" and developed a First Nations Forestry brochure for marketing and recruitment of First Nations students.  PREST, Gordon W. Coordinator First Nations Forestry Phone: (604) 822-0651 Fax: (604) 822-8645 E-mail: prest@interchg.ubc  PLANS FOR 2001-02 •  Increase enrolment for the coming year with First Nations Students into the forestry programs.  •  Formalize protocol agreements with Malaspina University College and University College of the Cariboo to ladder First Nation students into the third year of the B.S.F. programs. This would potentially limit relocation to the Lower Mainland and UBC campus to two years to complete third and fourth year to attain a B.S.F. degree from the Faculty of Forestry.  •  Meet with the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology and the Institute of Indigenous Government and other post secondary institutions and colleges to bridge and ladder potential First Nation technology students into the B.S.F. Program at UBC.  •  Increase Faculty involvement in the First Nations initiative.  •  Develop a research agenda for First Nations Forestry issues and host workshop for province-wide discussion with First Nation representatives and others.  2000 Annual Report  FORESTRY  51  H  FACULTY DEVELOPMENT  E A L T H Y , sustainable forests are vital to the future of humans, wildlife and the earth itself. Forests play an unmeasurable role in supporting urban development, inspiring folklore and art, and contributing to human physical and spiritual health. Continuing development, population growth, and issues such as climate change, demand that we manage our forests effectively. Education is the single most effective way to ensure that people for generations to come will manage forests in a way that will continue to promote growth and sustainability. The time has never been better to invest in the UBC Faculty of Forestry.  Sheila Biggers Development Officer  Some of the areas we will focus on are: •  Continuing to build the base of support available to students. We believe, as stated in the University's Trek 2000 Vision, that no deserving student should be denied access to an education because of financial limitations.  •  The revitalization of the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest to support the ongoing research, learning, and outreach activities of the Faculty. The Forest is becoming an increasingly integral part in the delivery of our programs, providing students with a unique opportunity to learn in the field and develop strong relationships with their peers. The upgrades will improve educational opportunities for students of all ages and in all programs, as well as for the larger community.  •  Support the First Nations Strategy for UBC Forestry. The importance of understanding and respecting the role First Nations have in the stewardship and management of Canada's forests is ever present. The Faculty is in the process of developing a comprehensive First Nations Strategy ensuring First Nations' students arc recruitcd and supported, issues are developed in course curriculum, and that we have academic competencies in this area.  • Designated Areas of Support The Faculty of Forestry received close to six hundred gifts from donors in the past year. Contributions to the Faculty totalled $388,247 and were directed to the following areas: BIGGERS, Sheila Development Officer Phone: (604) 822-8716 Fax: (604)822-8645 E-mail: sbiggers@interchg.ubc.ca  % of total $ raised  Area of designation  $ raised  Scholarships & Bursaries  133,847  34%  9,700  3%  National Education Initiative for CAWP Research  12,500  3%  Endowments  14,756  4%  217,444  56%  $388,247  100%  Academic Programs Total donations  • Forestry Alumni Continue their Support Forestry alumni showed even greater support of the Faculty this year than they did last year with total giving of $74,399. With much of this support going to student awards, our alumni are making significant contributions to the quality of Forestry students' education. Thank you to all our alumni and friends who show their ongoing support of the Faculty of Forestry.  PLANS FOR 2001-02 The appointment of a new Dean, Dr. Saddler, in the Faculty of Forestry provides an exciting opportunity for development. The Dean is working with the faculty to articulate our vision and goals for the future. Alumni, donors and friends have a large role to play in making the vision a reality.  52  UBC Faculty of Forestry  The students, faculty and staff at the UBC Faculty of Forestry thank our friends and supporters.

MacMillan Family Fund continues to provide essential support for Conservation 451, a course that is an integral part of the Natural Resources Conservation program. This course integrates natural sciences, social sciences, and management issues related to conservation of natural resources. The course consists of three modules each focussing on an ecosystem in B.C. The course was organised by Georgie Harrison in collaboration with Drs. Michael Feller, Susan Glenn, Scott Hinch and Kathy Martin. The H.R. MacMillan Family Fund is instrumental to the success of Conservation 451 by providing funds to bring guest lecturers to this innovative new course. The inclusion of these participants benefits the course by exposing students to the breadth of views that characterise resource issues in B.C. The H.R. MacMillan Family Fund enables Conservation 451 to invite multiple speakers to field sites so that students learn practical skills and have the opportunity to apply textbook theories in real world situations. In addition to the academic benefits, the inclusion of outside professionals enables students to increase their sense of professionalism and provides the opportunity for students to meet potential employers. This year, students and faculty had the opportunity to interact with over 30 invited speakers in classroom and field activities. These speakers ranged from academics from other institutions, workers and managers from resource-based industries, First Nations groups, government officials and a range of nongovernment organisations.  in wild  animals.
