Watershed Qualified Foresters

Watershed Qualified Foresters have an associate’s or bachelor’s degree in forestry and have received additional training in water quality protection from the New York City Watershed Agricultural Council. Some woodlot activities require help from a professional forester, and foresters are also helpful when you need information on a complex topic.
