The author argues that the dependence of forest production upon forest utilization is such a controlling factor in the future of forestry that the forest schools should train some of their students for the private forest industries as deliberately and adequately as they now train them for the public employ. He attempts to show, also, after discussing the factors that might increase or curtail the employment of forest school graduates, that there will be more forest graduates than the public services will absorb, thus offering another reason for diversifying forest education.
