The Triangle Resource and Environmental Economics (TREE) Seminar, a collaboration of Duke University, North Carolina State University, and RTI International, is one of the oldest research colloquia in the U.S. dedicated to the study of environmental, resource, and energy economics. It regularly attracts renown scholars to the North Carolina Research Triangle to hone and disseminate their research and enrich the scholarship of Triangle economists. A focal point for economists in Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, seminars are regularly attended by researchers at the partner institutions, as well as those affiliated with the University of North Carolina and government agencies and private firms throughout the Triangle. Any interested scholar is welcome to attend seminar and join the TREE community.

TREE Seminar is organized by Justin Baker of RTI International, Eric Edwards and Roger von Haefen of North Carolina State University, and Billy Pizer, Steven Sexton, and Chris Timmins of Duke University. Questions about TREE Seminar can be directed to the Steering Committee at
