Forestry is the science and art of generating, managing, playing, utilising, preserving, and repairing forests, woodlands, and related resources for the benefit of humans and the environment. Plantations and natural stands are both used in forestry. The biological, physical, social, political, and management sciences all have parts in forestry science.
Forest technology is a branch of science concerned with the production, harvesting, and preservation of trees. This includes topics like work science, accident analysis and reporting, and heat stress. Forest technology is also vital for sustainable forest management.
