What are top reasons to major in forestry?

The reasons for choosing this major are probably as varied as the students who choose it, but some reasons that we keep hearing repeatedly are:

  • I want to work outside. 
  • I want to make a difference in the world. 
  • I want a career with variety so I am not stuck doing the same thing year after year.
  • I want a career that can take me to new places and experience new things.
  • I want a career that utilizes new technologies.
