About Us

The Working Forest is the leading platform for building the workforce in the forestry industry. We have been at the forefront of the industry for decades, connecting individuals who are passionate about forestry with institutions and companies that provide opportunities for growth and success.

Our dedication to fostering connections between education and industry has earned us a reputation as the top provider of student placement, exchange programs, training for workers, and career development in the forestry field. We work closely with leading institutions and companies to provide a wide range of opportunities for individuals seeking to enter or advance in forestry.

Many moons ago the working forest began as a printed newspaper that covered the latest and greatest in the industry. As the digital age progressed, we began to distribute our newspaper online to thousands of subscribers.
Recent years have seen a drastic decline in the number of skilled workers. We feel our platform is the perfect place to amplify to potential students the opportunities and the abundance that exist in the forestry industry.

We chose 2023 to focus on promoting the growth of the workforce in the forestry industry. We still provide our readers with the most current and accurate information on the latest news, trends, and developments in this dynamic field, making it available in both print and digital formats for easy access.

Now, in addition to providing information and resources, we also offer a wide range of services to support the development of the workforce.

We are quickly building a track record of success in student placement, exchange programs, and training for workers. Our career development programs have been praised by industry professionals for their effectiveness in preparing individuals for successful careers in forestry.

We look forward to continuing to serve the industry and its workforce for many years to come.
