Lumberjack is a dangerous job in which those employed in the field work in relative isolation.

What's more, volatility in marketplaces completely beyond the logging industry's control impact the hiring of lumberjacks. Employment is tied to need in construction and publishing, two sectors that suffered significant declines in the last 5-10 years.

Technological advancements designed to make a lumberjack's work safer have also contributed to slowing in hiring.
