A forester may have an office of their own but in general they have to spend most of their time in remote outdoor places. This always leads them to challenging locations and sometimes they have to deal with turbulent weather conditions. As understandable, the job profile of the foresters is physically demanding and requires sincere hard work and dedication as woodlands in most cases are difficult to access and it can take several hours to reach work sites.
Foresters who have to spend a lot of time in the forest generally work for longer periods on a trot and take some days off in between work periods. On the other hand, the conservation foresters working for state and federal agencies work around 40 hours every week though hours may not always be fixed like that of the normal 9 to 5 working schedule. In times of natural calamities, forest fires and similar emergencies, foresters might have to work even in odd hours to bring the situation under control.
