Education in Forest Economics
Abstract:This report emphasizes the broad scope and basic importance of forest economics. It recommends more adequate training in this field for the general practitioner, but discusses chiefly the preparation of specialists. These, the committee believes, should have a training in forestry approximately equivalent to the bachelor's degree plus graduate training in economics, with emphasis on its application to forestry. A tentative program of studies leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy is suggested, although it is distinctly stated that "conditions and needs at different institutions and with different individuals vary so widely as to make any arbitrary or inflexible standard both impracticable and undesirable." Stress is laid on the need of fellowships for graduate students in forest economics.
