Forestry is a close knit community of men and women dedicated to the practice of, and advancing our knowledge in, sustainable management. BC, the north island specifically, will continue to need highly skilled forest professionals. Forestry has provided a good life for me and my family and I’m proud to be part of the team launching a much needed regional program.
