  JOBS IN FORESTRY

* Are you a Jobseeker with a disability? Check out our new section for Equal Opportunity Employment!

Forestry today is much more than harvesting timber. Forests protect soils, filter our air and water and provide habitat for vast numbers of wildlife. The complex relationships between our forest lands and our urban areas mean an increasingly difficult work environment.

Foresters increasingly need good communication skills to educate the public about good stewardship of our natural resources, creating fire-defendable zones in the interface and protecting water supply sources. Potable water is increasingly scarce and well managed forests are a critical element to maintain water supplies across the USA.

The conservation responsibilities of the Forester is continually expanding with the needs to protect clean drinking water, slow soil erosion, integrate wildlife habitat with woodland operations. Forest biotechnology is an growing field. Nationally, we need people committed to stewardship of our forests on both public and private lands.

While professional forestry requires college degrees, this is not a high paying occupation and professional job opportunities are scarce. Individuals who choose this profession will gain a lifetime filled with the wonders of the forest. Yes, you can get paid to hike through the woods!

Forestry (as well as wildland fire fighting) can also be excellent occupational choices for military veterans. Forestry is a good fit for active individuals who can work independently without supervision. Our public resources need good people who care about the land as a national trust for future generations. California is one state wooing Veterans for forestry and fire protection occupations.

Note: Forestry has been a lifelong passion of my spouse. Consequently there are two jobs pages. Be sure to check FORESTRY 2 for more job hunting resources.
