Identifying and addressing forestland owners’ needs, entrepreneurship in the forestry sector, community forestry and forest-based economic development.
Dr. Fraser’s research involves examining the social and economic relationships between forests and people in rural Alabama, the role of minority landowners and entrepreneurs in forestry and forest products economies of the United States and the building of a forestry outreach program for Alabama’s under-served woodland owners. He works closely with the National Network of Forest Practitioners, the Alabama Forestry Commission, the Federation of Southern Cooperatives and the Alabama Consortium in articulating opportunities for underrepresented minorities in forestry and service delivery to underserved forestland owners.
