A Forester is a civilian unit in Imperialism who can improve hardwood forest tiles to make them produce more timber (two or three units instead of one).

You need Iron Railroad Bridge technology (costing $1,500 and generally available in the early 1820s) to be able to build a forester in the University with the standard two pieces of paper and a small monetary fee. Cost is $100 per tile.

You need Compound Steam Engine technology (costing $7,000 and generally available in the late 1830s) to be able to upgrade forest to the next level, at $1,000 per tile.

In Imperialism 2, making hardwood forests more productive is one of the many jobs that can be done by a Builder; you get no timber from any forest tile until a builder works on it.
