A big jump in the number of people applying to forestry jobs is one of the big reasons for a recent surge in forestry careers.
But what’s going on in forestry jobs right now?

For example, forestry careers in the western U.S. are booming, with jobs growing by about 300,000 per year since 2007, according to the U.K.-based Centre for Employment and Skills Research.
In Canada, the figure is more than 400,000.
In the U, a forestry career can be anywhere from a low-paying entry level job to a lucrative job that pays up to $180,000 a year.
And those who get into the field of forestry have an average starting salary of $62,000, according a 2014 report from the U of T’s forestry department.
For the past several years, however, the job market has been improving, with forestry jobs growing at an average rate of 8.6 per cent annually.
This is thanks to the expansion of the Canadian forest industry, with demand from a growing global population.
And it’s a job that’s being embraced by new recruiters looking to get into forestry careers with a flexible schedule and flexible salary.
In 2016, there were nearly 3.6 million people working in forestry, according the U-K-based Centre, and those numbers are expected to grow further this year as more companies offer forestry jobs in their marketing and advertising departments.
“A lot of forestry careers are growing but the majority are not,” said Robyn Geddes, senior vice-president of the forestry and forest products industry at Cesar Inc. in Toronto.
“There’s a growing need for a flexible, flexible schedule, which is why we’re seeing companies like us opening up for recruitment.”
Geddes says her company, which has been recruiting for years in the forestry industry, recently hired a new manager.
It’s a big hire for Cesar, as the company was looking for a full-time job and needed someone who could handle a range of positions, from office workers to managers.
The hiring process took two weeks, Gedds said, and the new manager was the right fit.
In addition to the increasing number of jobs being available, there are also signs that people are moving into forestry.
The number of new forestry jobs that opened up in 2017 was more than twice that of the previous year.
About 80 per cent of the openings were in forestry related occupations, up from just 15 per cent in 2015.
And the growth has been most pronounced in the Western U..
S., where forestry jobs are growing by more than 200,000 every year.
The U. K.-based Forestry Association of Canada says the increase is a reflection of a more diverse workforce, and more people are willing to take on the new opportunities that come with forestry.
“There are more people in forestry than ever before and more opportunities are available than ever,” said Karen McNeill, the executive director of the association.
“But we’re also seeing an increase in jobs in other areas of the economy, too.”
McNeill said that the growth in forestry employment is a testament to the importance of forestry in the economy.
“I think that is a really good sign that there are opportunities for the forestry sector,” she said.
“I think forestry is the fastest-growing sector in Canada and there are a lot of opportunities in forestry.”
While there’s an increase of opportunities for forestry job seekers, there’s also a decrease of forestry jobs being filled.
And that’s because of a change in forestry hiring policies that are pushing the number and types of jobs out of the industry.
Currently, forestry employers must fill a number of vacancies for workers who are not currently in the field, such as people who have retired or have moved out of a field.
While this practice is common in other industries, it’s not in forestry.
For this reason, the number one concern is how many jobs are left available for applicants, which can mean hiring a temporary worker.
“The forestry sector is going through a transition right now,” said Heather Kornell, senior director of government and community relations for the Canadian Association of Forestry Industries.
“We’re going to see a transition of more permanent positions.
I think it’s important to make sure that we’re filling the right positions.”
Currently, there is a cap on the number or types of workers that can be hired in forestry occupations, so companies are trying to find more flexibility in how they hire temporary workers.
“They’re looking for more flexible jobs, more flexible terms of employment,” said Kornella.
“Some companies are looking at hiring temporary workers through temporary work, through part-time, through no-work, temporary, but they’re also looking at finding a way to fill the permanent positions
