A career in forestry

Forestry workers carry out a variety of jobs to care for and manage trees, woodland areas and forests for the production of timber and for recreation.
Forests are very important to the natural environment, providing health benefits as well as a sustainable resource of raw material and renewable energy. Forestry work includes wildlife conservation and understanding of biodiversity as well as producing a versatile crop. Forests also often provide the location for other activities such as game management, horse logging, forest schools and mountain biking.
