The Bureau of Meteorology has released an online application for forestry degree positions.

It will allow employers to get an initial look at the candidates and then decide whether they’ll accept or reject them.

The bureau says more than half of the candidates are in their early 20s and the average age is 24.

The application will run until September 27.

The BOM is also encouraging applicants to get in touch with their local local Forestry and Wildlife Branch and request an interview.

It’s been a tough couple of years for the forestry industry in the Murray-Darling Basin.

The Murray-delta Regional Council has seen more than 80 per cent of its forest logged since the turn of the century, while the region has seen a total loss of over $4 billion worth of timber.

The federal government is set to announce a massive $5 billion investment in the region, which is home to one of Australia’s most valuable reserves.

The Northern Territory has also experienced a massive increase in the logging industry in recent years.
