Linda Coghlan
For women considering a career in forestry, the physical ability required is more fitness and technique rather than strength. If you enjoy variability in your working day; being part of an industry which is not yet hitting its prime; the great outdoors; a love of nature and peaceful surroundings then forestry is for you.

Enterprising?
Enterprising
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.
