   On May 1st, 1936 Faculty of Forestry emerged initially as Forestry School offering 
   a 2- year curriculum under Royal Forestry Department, Ministry of Agriculture 
   (now Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives). There were 25 forestry students 
   at the beginning. The 2- year program was operated until 1939 
   when the Forestry School was transferred to Kasetsart College and 
   extended the curriculum to be a 3 year program under the College of Forestry.


On February 2, 1943 the Kasetsart College was conferred as a university 
status through amalgamation of the College of Agriculture and College of 
Forestry with the two additional Faculties of Fisheries and Cooperative 
Sciences. The program for Bachelor degree in Forestry was then first 
offered under a 5-year curriculum.

In 1964 the program was changed to 4 years with 3 undergraduate study

fields namely: General Forestry, Conservation, and Wood Technology.

Since then the curriculum has been updated several times until recently

in year 1999.

in 1967 and Doctorate degree in 1992. The Faculty of forestry contains

an Administrative Service Unit, Forestry Library, Forest Research Center,
