Forestry

forestry-engineering

Forestry engineers are involved in planning to replace trees cut down, as well as in designing of lumber harvesting and processing equipment.

Examples

Forestry engineers are responsible for taking care of our forests and all things related to them.

Forestry engineers:

  • Manage how many trees are being taken for resources like paper and wood for building
  • Design roads that lead to all areas of forests and prevent floods from happening
  • Make sure that the communities around the forest area remain a safe place to live

In your community

Aboriginal forestry engineers have an important role to play because many forests belong to First Nations communities, therefore we must protect our land from harm. 

Forests are a gift from the Creator. Managing them requires a deep understanding and respect of their rhythms and life. Putting together traditional wisdom with scientific knowledge will guarantee that our forests will stay protected and healthy for seven generations and beyond.
