Emma Sass is a Research Fellow at the University of Massachusetts Department of Environmental Conservation/ USDA Forest Service’s Family Forest Research Center (FFRC). Her primary interests are forest management and conservation and how identity influences our relationship to forests. Her work focuses on the implementation and analysis of the National Woodland Owner Survey (NWOS), including a survey of large, corporate forestland owners and a survey for woodland owners in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Other projects include research on how landowners in the eastern and central U.S. feel about oak forests and their management as part of American Forest Foundation’s White Oak Initiative.

Emma received a B.S. from Tufts University in Biology and Environmental Studies and a M.S. from the University of Vermont in Natural Resources with a concentration in Forest Science.
