Forestry is a very good industry to work in, people treat you very fairly and there are so many learning opportunities and challenges along the way
I started as a 4th Class Power Engineer, progressed to a 3rd Class Power Engineer and now I am the Relief Chief Operator. What I like most about the forestry industry is it is self-sustaining and recycles waste products such as: chips, fines, and hog fuel.
My advice is you can’t go wrong with a career in forestry, if you enjoy working in a team environment but also being independent to work alone at times too. It’s a very good industry to work in, people treat you very fairly and there are so many learning opportunities and challenges along the way.
To create a healthy work/life balance, I use my holidays to go on vacation. I find the shift schedule is really good with the days we work to our days off. The company helps by being understanding with changing schedules when needed or if wanted, excused days if needed, and always very family orientated.
