July 12th is the day of the Forest Engineer (Dia do Engenheiro Florestal), a professional responsible for analyzing forest ecosystems and planning strategies to use them in a sustainable way. This date was chosen because on July 12th 1073, Saint John Gualberto died, who was chosen by Pope Pius XII, in 1952, as the Protector of Foresters.
According to the resolution number 218, dated June 29, 1973, from the Federal Council of Engineering, Architecture and Agronomy, it is up to the forest engineer to develop activities related to rural engineering; constructions for forestry purposes and their complementary installations, silvimetry and forest inventory; forest improvement; renewable natural resources; ecology, climatology, forest health defense; forest products, their technology and industrialization; edaphology; soil and forest use processes; forest planning and management; forest mechanization; forest implements; rural economy and credit for forestry purposes; and related services.
The role of this professional is extremely important, since the country has a large forest area and therefore needs professionals capable of controlling the unbridled exploitation of its resources. To be a good professional it is fundamental to have ethics and commitment to the preservation of nature.
