From Commercial to Recreational Forester
Abstract:Recently accelerated development in the field of outdoor recreation has created a demand for recreational foresters which the past and present output of forest schools has been insufficient to meet. Accordingly, in answer to this demand, some foresters have turned from commercial forestry to recreational forestry pursuits. In describing the transition that takes place when a forester undergoes such a readjustment, the author ably and comprehensively sketches the entire field of forestry in recreational areas, and outline the duties of the recreational forester.
