Tristan's Experience

Tristan working in the backcountry

I started working for West Fraser right after I graduated from high school. Following that, I completed a diploma in Natural Resources and Environmental Technology at the College of New Caledonia, and am now entering my final year of the Forest Ecology and Management degree program at UNBC.

My goal over the next few years is to work towards certification as a Registered Professional Forester, enhancing my ability to make a positive contribution to the management of BC’s forest resources.

The best part of my job is getting out to the bush every day. Outside of work, I do a lot of activities in BC’s backcountry, so it’s great to be able to help preserve and manage the beautiful places where we live.

Students can expect a fun, challenging, and rewarding experience in the forest industry, and West Fraser in particular is an innovative company with friendly, hard-working staff.
