What can I do with the degree in Forestry Studies?

The forests are coherently covered areas of the Earth's surface, complex communities of trees, shrubs, ground plants and forest animals, that continuously produce wood, and which deliver numerous general benefits to all people.  For that reason, the unique goods are of interest to the Republic of Croatia and are under its special protection.  Sustainable use and management of forests, which occupy 47 percent of the land area of ​​our country, is one of the most responsible and professional jobs that integrate several fundamental and applied knowledge of biological and technical areas. The future of our forests, as well as of ourselves, is a challenging and responsible task which presents future bachelors and Master of Forestry with numerous challenges.

What can I do with the degree in Urban Forestry, Nature and Environment Protection?

Forest management requires a multifunctional approach and must meet diverse social needs. In addition to the constantly increasing need for the renewable sources of raw materials, it is essential to preserve the natural environment (forests as the air and water purifiers, oxygen producers, carbon sink, etc.), but also to highlight the social need of the society (forest as the area of aesthetic value and positive affect on human health, as well as the area for recreation and tourism activities).  Urban Forestry is an integrated approach to planning, establishing and managing the trees and forests in urban environments.  At global level, more than a half of the world's population lives in urban areas. Urban trees and forests make an important segment of the sustainable development of  urban areas due to numerous benefits they offer to the urban population such as air purification, noise reduction, mitigation of impacts of climatic extremes, providing rest and recreational areas for the population, habitats for plant and animal species and aesthetic values of the urban greening.  Forests and trees in urban areas live in modified habitat conditions, and in order to provide benefits for urban population, they require special care and treatment which can be provided by experts with Bachelor and Master’s degrees in Urban Forestry, Nature and Environment Protection.
