Foresters plan and supervise the growing, protection, and harvesting of trees. They estimate the amount of standing timber and manage timber sales. They also protect forests from fire, harmful insects, and disease.
Conservationists, on the other hand, develop methods of getting the most use out of the earth without damaging the environment.
Vincennes University’s Forestry and Conservation program is a cooperative effort between VU and Purdue University. Once you complete the A.S. degree at VU, you can transfer directly to Purdue to finish your baccalaureate degree.
