Forest, conservation, and logging workers
Description: Forestry and conservation workers help develop and protect forests by planting new trees, fighting the pests and diseases that attack trees, and helping to control soil erosion. Timber cutters and loggers cut down thousands of acres of forests each year for the timber that is used for wood and paper products. Forestry, conservation, and logging workers work outdoors in all kinds of weather. Their work is demanding and dangerous.
