Retired foresters want to help with forestry

Re­tired foresters be­lieve the Forestry Di­vi­sion is un­der­staffed and lacks prop­er man­age­ment train­ing.

Dur­ing their an­nu­al Christ­mas lun­cheon held at the San Fer­nan­do Hill, vice pres­i­dent of the Forestry Re­tirees As­so­ci­a­tion Clarence Bac­chus said the re­tirees were will­ing to share their wealth of ex­per­tise to as­sist in prop­er forests man­age­ment.

In an in­ter­view, Bac­chus said more train­ing must be pro­vid­ed to the cadre of for­est rangers who man­age T&T’s for­est re­serves.
