A large percentage of the current work force in Forestry and Natural Resources jobs are nearing retirement age. Retirements within the Federal Government, State Agencies, and private industry are creating a shortage of qualified entry-level foresters and natural resource technicians. As this trend continues, it will create even greater challenges to the forest and natural resources industries. Careers in natural resources continue to show a bright future due to an expanding human population, urban sprawl, water use, ecosystem restoration, wildfire, pollution, and the loss of biodiversity. A multitude of issues are increasing the complexity of how state, federal, and global resources that can best be utilized while preserving them for future generations.
