Wayne K Clatterbuck

Professor | School of Natural Resources

Specialization: Forest Management & Hardwood Silviculture

Overview

Dr. Wayne K. Clatterbuck is a Professor of Silviculture and Forest Management at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. He holds an appointment with UT Extension. His responsibilities are in forest management education and include assistance to the county extension network in forestry, coordinator of the Tennessee Master Logger Program, forest landowner education, and continuing education for forestry professionals. He has been with the university since 1995. The primary research interest of Dr. Clatterbuck is in forest stand dynamics focusing on the ecological changes in species composition, stand structure and development during forest succession and following forest disturbance. His studies center in hardwood silviculture, particularly oak species, from obtaining regeneration to intermediate stand treatments and rehabilitating undesirable cutover stands. He is also interested in mixed shortleaf pine-hardwood silviculture including disturbance ecology. He directs several graduate students and is the instructor for the undergraduate and graduate silviculture classes.
