Forestry offers students a unique opportunity to become a qualified Forestry Technician. This is the only California, 2-year college with a Forestry and Natural Resources Program leading to an Associate of Science in Forestry degree provisionally accredited by the Society of American Foresters. Graduates are typically recruited as utility foresters and timber management technicians for federal, state and private natural resources companies and agencies.

Classes include academic and extensive hands-on training within a 700-acre RC forest and a 1.5-mile riparian zone on campus along the Kings River.
