FOREST OPERATIONS - Forestry Bachelor of Science Concentration
Based on landowners' objectives and the science and practice of forest sustainability, operations foresters plan, manage, and evaluate forest operations in the context of the environmental, logistical, social and technological factors that define the environment within which forest operations are conducted.
Forest operations include: planting and site preparation; pre-commercial thinning; forest inventory and valuation; timber harvest management; and the planning, construction, and maintenance of forest roads, skid trails, and stream crossings.
Graduates work as consulting foresters, industrial and procurement foresters, and for public forestry agencies.
