Forest engineering.

Forest engineering applies physical, biological, and engineering sciences to solving problems in natural resources and environment, forest production systems, and related manufacturing industries. Engineering skills and expertise are needed to address problems related to equipment design and manufacturing; forest access systems design and construction; machine/soil interaction and erosion control; forest operations analyzation and improvement; decision modeling; and wood product design and manufacturing. Forest engineers are involved in a full range of activities in natural resource management and forest production systems.
