Working in Forestry

A day in the life

A day in the life view of what working in the forestry industry is like, including how to get started with training, keeping safe and growth opportunities for the future.

Hear some of the stories of our men and women on the job and learn about the things they enjoy, as well as the challenges they have found whilst working in forestry.

The forestry industry provides great training and support and Te Wānanga o Aotearoa has a training programme offering that pathways potential recruits into the industry.

Guided by Māori principles and values, we take great pride in this nurturing and inclusive learning environment, as well as the depth and diversity of our courses. Our Umanga programmes can help people gain the experience and qualifications they need for a career. With a trade under their belt they’ll be better set up for a successful future for themselves and their whānau.
