Tall Timbers researches the areas of fire ecology, resource management, forestry, game bird management, and vertebrate ecology.

The Research Station was formerly a quail hunting plantation called Tall Timbers Plantation built in 1895 by Edward Beadel.

Fire Ecology ProgramEdit

The Fire Ecology Program is designed to provide the public with applicable, science-based information on prescribed fire and vegetation dynamics in the southern pine ecosystem, specifically in the Red Hills Region.

Resource Management ProgramEdit

The Resource Management Program's responsibility is to manage the land so that the upland forests are maintained in an open, park-like condition using prescribed fire, mechanical tools, and chemical techniques to accomplish land management goals.

The Forestry Program is designed to meet the ecological forestry research needs of the Red Hills Region between Tallahassee, Florida and Thomasville, Georgia.

Game Bird ProgramEdit
