CAREERS WITHIN Forestry
Forestry Conservation Workers, under supervision, perform manual labor necessary to develop, maintain, or protect forest, forested areas, and woodlands through such activities as raising and transporting tree seedlings; combating insects, pests, and diseases harmful to trees; and building erosion and water control structures and leaching of forest soil. Forestry Conservation Workers need to determine which tools and techniques should be applied to solve a problem or deal with a situation. They also need to listen well to others and take in their information and issues.
