Forest and conservation workers perform manual labor necessary to develop, maintain or protect forests, forested areas and woodlands through such activities as raising and transporting tree seedlings; combating insects, pests and diseases harmful to trees; and building erosion and water control structures and leaching of forest soil. They include forester aides, seedling pullers and tree planters.
One state requires a license to work as a forest worker. Connecticut requires a $103 application fee and one exam with a fee of $26. These requirements rank as the 93rd most burdensome of the 102 occupations.
