Forestry is defined as the science and practice of all tree management.
This includes forest and woodland management, arboriculture, urban forestry, environmental forestry and research, education and training in all these fields.
Arboriculture and forestry both involve working with and around trees, and forests and woodland are an important resource for timber, amenity and recreation, tourism and biodiversity.
Forestry focuses on the management of forests and woodland, from planting through to thinning and felling.
Arboriculture centres on the cultivation, management and care for individual trees, or groups of trees, with the primary aim of maintaining them for amenity purposes.
