Forestry careers lead to jobs in private industry and the government. Conservation scientists and foresters held about 29,000 jobs in 2000, with 40% of those workers being employed by the Federal Government, with many of these being in the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). Another 20%of foresters find employment in state and local governments. New jobs will be driven by concerns about environmental protection and land management.
