  • USDA Forest Service
  • National Park Service
  • Green Industry (arboriculture, urban forestry)
  • Wildfire Fighting
  • Timber Harvesting
  • Local Conservation agencies

Many of our student choose to continue their education towards a B.S. degree. Forest technology students can smoothly transition to B.S. programs at the Penn State School of Forest Resources.
