THE CONTENT IN OUR WEEKLY EMAIL IS CURATED BY FORESTERS FOR FORESTERS
Curated information is derived from a combination of Forteck crew members with first-hand experience and verified online sources or government sites. We work very hard to provide quality educational information relevant to the forestry industry to promote forestry and the great things foresters can do. Please let us know if you find any misinformation and we will correct it immediately. It takes a village to educate! Thank you for reading and working together in further teaching people about forestry. #forestryproud
Meet our Forteck Project Manager and member of our Field Staff, Emily Byvank! Emily is a Registered Professional Forester with education from the University of Alberta, having joined our Forteck team roughly 9 months ago. Her main focus throughout her career has been Planning and layout, she's also had exposure to Silviculture (tree planting, post-harvest assessments, surveys, herbicide, tree improvement) and Operations (logging, road reclamation).
Emily's free time depends on how much Cutblock Layout she's been doing! During the busy season of layout, she likes to seek comfort in her spare time by reading, playing music, golfing, and gardening. If she's been more office-based, she likes to be a little more active with activities including hiking, camping, and spending time on the water. Fun fact about Emily, this is her first year of running a marketing gardening business!
When we asked Emily what her favourite part about working with Forteck was, here's what she had to say,
"The flexibility and opportunities. I generally get to choose my own schedule based on what is happening in my personal life. I've also gotten to see some cool new areas in the province and experience different types of work."
