Vocational
Forestry & Wildlife

Students interested in forestry and wildlife careers should have a great love of animals and the outdoors. This interesting field will require hours working in the elements, physical demands on the body and a respect for wild animals.

Students interested in forestry can earn an Associate's degree in forestry management from vocational or community colleges. Other forestry training is often on-the-job, or students can pursue a full, four-year Bachelor's degree in forestry.

Students will learn about natural resources, forestry and wildlife ecology, plant pathology, forest fire control and more. After graduation, students may find employment working for public agencies or interest groups, educational or research institutions or for consulting firms.

Forestry and wildlife workers may spend days replanting forests, or removing diseased or dead plant life. Cutting down brush and debris, or participating in controlled burns also are duties of a forestry worker. Other workers may be employed in nurseries or on tree farms, helping to maintain the growth and health of the trees.
