Forest engineering applies physical, biological, and engineering skills to solving problems in natural resources and environment, forest production systems, and related manufacturing industries. Forest engineers are involved in a full range of activities in natural resource management and forest production systems.
Their engineering skills and expertise are needed to address problems related to equipment design and manufacturing, design and construction of forest access systems, machine operation and erosion control, forest ecosystem management and improvement, and wood product design and manufacturing.
