This was my first work term in co-op, and my job was a Forest Technician, working for Forsite in Mackenzie. Most of my days are spent doing timber development, essentially preparing the block for harvest. Some of my most common tasks are laying out boundary, and roads, as well as traversing and assessing streams. I have also had the chance to do reconnaissance work, and on occasion do some timber cruising. I have really appreciated this work term because it has really allowed me to take the knowledge I have gained in the classroom and apply it every day in the field. This job has been an amazing start to my forestry career.
