The technician is an employee who works under the direction of a professional (BS degree) forester and will undertake the fieldwork that is necessary to manage the forest. A career as a forest technician involves a variety of challenging jobs including timber inventory, procurement, maintenance of forest roads, forest management, forest stand improvement, fire and pest control, soil and water conservation, wildlife management, harvest planning, logging, cartography, and surveying. Technicians work outside in all kinds of weather and have to do some office work. Like most professions, forestry is a high technology field with portable data collectors, geographic information systems (GIS), computer analysis of harvesting strategies, and decision-making models for forest management. The Forest Technology curriculum emphasizes the development of practical field skills. Students often have the opportunity to participate in forestry field operations such as control burning, stand description, running land lines, and development of forest management plans. The curriculum emphasizes forestry practices that are common and accepted in the Southeast. The training is sufficiently broad to assure the graduate of competing successfully for jobs throughout the United States. The cost of attending LBWCC is comparatively low. Financial aid is available along with a limited number of LBWCC Foundation scholarships. Forestry scholarship applications are available through the Forestry Department and must be submitted yearly by March 1.
