We depend on forests for our survival. Forestry is a science of creating, managing, using, conserving, and repairing forests, woodlands, and associated resources for human and environmental benefits. In other words the air we breathe to the wood we use, this is due to forestry. It is practiced in plantations and natural stands. We use forest for providing livelihoods for humans & animals, watershed protection, prevent soil erosion and mitigate climate changes. There are three different types of forests found around the world: tropical forests, temperate forests and boreal forests.
Forest engineering includes working to ensure the health and sustainability of wild lands, timberlands and watersheds while allowing for such economic activities as timber harvesting and recreational use. It is the application of engineering principles and techniques to the management of forest lands.
People who have the skills to solve engineering problems in the natural environment, while balancing socio, economic, and environmental requirements they are do better engineering planning for forestry. Forest engineers construct and evaluate the operational systems that make the forest industry ‘work’. This work can include- Designing and building new roads.
They provide ecosystem services that are critical to human welfare. These include:
Consuming harmful greenhouse gasses that produce climate change.
Providing clean water for drinking, bathing, and other household needs.
Providing food and medicine
Protecting as a buffer in natural disasters like flood and rainfalls.
Providing habitat to more than half of the world’s land-based species.
Preserving watersheds and reducing or slowing the amount of erosion and chemicals that reach waterways.
Now-a-days environment polluted day by day due to artificial reasons as well as human activities. To protect the environment for the welfare purposes we have to arrange many more conferences regarding environment pollution among the world. And also we have to create awareness for the protection of environment.
