Foresters do much of their work outdoors, especially during the early part of their careers. Ralph Unversaw, a district forester for the state of Indiana, still spends most of his time outdoors. "Normally, I spend about four days out of a five-day workweek outside, and the fifth inside trying to catch up on paperwork," he says. Most of Unversaw's job involves working with private woodland owners to manage their properties. "My job is to promote forest management," he says. "If they want to do some sort of timber management, I can advise them on planting, selecting trees for harvest, and harvesting."
