Career in Forestry:

Foresters have a wide range of duties and responsibilities. Some of their primary duties include drawing up plans to regenerate forest lands, monitor the progress of those lands, and supervising tree harvests. They also direct and participate in fire suppression as well as select and prepare sites for new trees using controlled burning, bulldozers, or herbicides to clear the land.

Becoming a forester involves acquiring a bachelor’s degree in forestry or other closely related fields, such as agricultural science, environmental management, environmental science, or environmental engineering. There is also more than one kind of forester: examples of the different types are, procurement foresters, restoration planners, urban foresters, and conservation education foresters.

According to the data released by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the median salary for foresters and conservation scientist is $59,060 per year or $28.40 per hour. The BLS projects that there would only be a 3% growth in the occupation for foresters from 2012 to 2022, which is slower than most occupations.
