Think you know what a career in forestry would look like? There’s so much more to it than trees! In this industry, we fly drones, operate heavy equipment, create complex mapping systems, use intricate software systems, and constantly look out for the wildlife, plant life and waterways we are responsible for.

Nassau County high school juniors and seniors are invited to join us for Rayonier’s first-ever Forestry Career Day. Meet career professionals from Rayonier and the many local companies we work with in one of Florida’s most important industries. Learn how to control pollination with our genetic breeding research team, take a ride above the treetops in a hydraulic lift, try your hand operating a mini excavator, and find out what it’s really like to be behind the wheel of a log truck. You’ll also have an opportunity to meet with representatives from college-level forestry schools and get advice on resume-writing and interviewing.
