The mission of the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest is to support research on forests, streams, and watersheds, and to foster strong collaboration among ecosystem science, education, natural resource management, and the humanities. Over the more than 60 years since its inception, the Andrews Forest has had a rich and diverse research history, with major research foci changing over time.
All new project proposals go through a review to determine potential conflicts with existing research, compatibility with Andrews forest research guidelines, and any potential impacts relevant to the National Environmental Policy Act.
The Andrews Forest has a data access policy to make datasets generated at the site available to researchers and others in a timely fashion. Those conducting research with existing Andrews Forest datasets should consider consultation, collaboration and/or co-authorship with the original investigators and should properly Acknowledge use of datasets. Likewise, new researchers are expected to contribute metadata and data to the Forest Science Data Bank for long-term archiving.
Publications resulting from research at the Andrews Forest should be sent to (an electronic PDF).
