Foresters plan and supervise the growing, protection, and harvesting of trees. They estimate the amount of standing timber and manage timber sales. They also protect forests from fire, harmful insects, and disease.

Conservationists, on the other hand, develop methods of getting the most use out of the earth without damaging the environment.
