The UPLB College of Forestry and Natural Resources (CFNR)

Institute of Renewable Natural Resources (IRNR)

The reorganization of the UPLB College of Forestry into the College of Forestry and Natural Resources on 25 June 1998 necessitated the merger of its two academic units – the Department of Forest Resources Management and the Department of Silviculture and Forest Influences into the present Institute of Renewable Natural Resources (IRNR).

The Institute is composed of seven co-dependent units (4 divisions and 3 laboratories) namely: Environmental Forestry Division (EFD); Forest Resources Management Division (FRMD); Natural Resources Conservation Division (NRCD); Silviculture and Resources Rehabilitation Division (SRRD); the Environmental Remote Sensing and Geoinformation Laboratory (ERSG); the Soils Laboratory and the Forest Agroforest Nursery Learning Laboratory (FANLL).
