Service Foresters are Massachusetts Licensed Foresters who work for the Bureau of Forestry in the Department of Conservation and Recreation. They provide technical assistance to landowners and municipalities in forest resource planning, forest management, and forest protection in 14 districts across the State.

The Service Forestry Program helps landowners and municipalities "get started" on long-term forest management and guides forest landowners to the programs and services that will best meet the landowners objectives. Service Foresters can respond to your request with follow-up information or a free visit to evaluate your woodlands and answer your questions.
