Bob White knew he wanted to work in the field of urban forestry, and he knew he wanted to attend Warnell. Still, when he received his degree in forest resources, there were some gaps he had to fill in on his own.

“It’s night and day between what a forester will do,” and working in a community setting, says White (BSFR ’10, MS ’12). And so, when it came time for his master’s, White assembled a committee that included community forestry expert Kim Coder.

Looking up from the road, a stand of pine trees may look healthy as they tower over the rusty soil. 

But a view of the trees from a different angle reveals a different story: A swath of needles the color of the soil that are embedded deep among the healthy trees. The infestation of beetles couldn’t be caught without some serious boots-on-the-ground investment—or, it could be caught in minutes using an unmanned aerial vehicle, or UAV.

The Colorado River snakes through seven states before crossing the Mexican border. Along the way, it’s held back by dams and distracted by reservoirs and wetlands. Depending on the season and the location, it alternates between cold, muddy and rushing or warm, clear and slow.
