Logging Industry Workers


Employment for most logging and timber cutting workers is expected to decline 14 percent through 2028, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Despite this outlook, there should continue to be good employment opportunities for logging industry workers as a result of steady turnover in the field. The DOL reports that "some fallers will continue to be needed to fell trees on slopes that cannot be accessed by large machinery. Additionally, the need to prevent destructive wildfires by thinning susceptible forests may result in some new jobs."
