What is a Forester? 

Foresters work outdoors and are experts in managing growth of different types of trees and other vegetation. They are skilled in planting, removing or caring for trees, while considering how a forest may develop over long time frames. From planting seedlings to inspecting a contractor’s work, foresters provide the technical and professional expertise for evaluating the health of our forests.
