According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, forestry workers don't need a college degree. However, an associate's degree can provide valuable training and a competitive edge in the field. Forestry technician jobs typically require an associate's degree accredited by the Society of American Foresters, and a bachelor's degree from an accredited school is the entry-level requirement for becoming a forester.
The future of timber is looking up with some things that will almost certainly be made out of timber in the future, like computer chips so we can have a renewable way to make them, car panels so cars can be made cheaper and easier, it will be used for outer coatings for food to keep them fresher for longer, and many more things in the future will be made out of this amazing resource called timber.
