THE forestry sector is a male-dominated area.

However, there has been an increase in the number of women joining this sector, says permanent secretary for the Ministry of Forestry Pene Baleinabuli.

He said this was a positive indication because women brought with them an array of expertise.

“They bring with them a wealth of knowledge and love,” Mr Baleinabuli said.

“Although they might not be as strong as men, they have more wisdom and more passion for the work.”
