Foresters have an ethical responsibility to those they serve. However, sometimes it is hard to determine where the line is between what is ethical and what may be construed as unethical. This course serves as a reminder of our ethical duties and gives examples of situations where ethics come into play.
Foresters have a responsibility to manage land for both current and future generations in an ethical fashion. This course is a refresher in ethics as they apply to forestry situations. Real life examples will be used to illustrate how tough ethical dilemmas may be handled by and to help us identify those areas that skirt the edges of ethical conduct. The North Carolina State Board of Registration for Foresters is pleased to have Butch Bailey, Extension Associate with Mississippi State University, put a new face on the traditional ethics presentation. Examples of ethics related situations from North Carolina will also be presented by the board. This course is being offered by the North Carolina State Board of Registration for Foresters as a service to the professional forestry community.
