ABSTRACT
Forest engineers and forest rangers fulfill the forest management activities considering the principle of efficiency and sustainability in Turkey. Forestry activities that forest rangers prioritized for each season were questioned in the study in accordance with the purpose of forest enterprises. The study was carried out in the Denizli Forest Enterprise Directorate in Turkey. The seasonal priority value of each activity performed in forestry departments was determined by the ranking technique. The ranking of most prioritized forestry activities on a seasonal basis was determined using the linear combination technique. As a result of analysis, the forestation, silviculture, production and marketing activities are given the highest priority in autumn, winter and spring seasons by forest rangers. Also, the activities of combating forest fires are given the highest priority during the summer season. The least priority is usually given to the activities in the non-wood forest products and services department. As a result, forest rangers’ priorities for forestry activities differ according to the seasons.
