Overview

A professional who practises forestry, the science of managing forests, is called a forester. Foresters are involved in a large range of activities covering ecological restoration, timber harvesting and day-to-day management of protected areas. They look after regular activities in the forests including conservation, outdoor recreation, extraction of raw materials, aesthetics and hunting. With gradual rise in global pollution over the years, ensuring carbon sequestration, air quality and maintaining a proper biodiversity have all come under the jurisdiction of foresters.
