A FORESTER: "Many people  confuse the role of the forester with that of the logger, but most foresters are concerned not only with the harvest of the timber, but also with the sustainable management of forests to:  (in the words of Gifford Pinchot) 'Provide the greatest good for the greatest number in the long term'" (Wikipedia)
