The author of this paper maintains that in the broad scheme of forestry education in the United States there is decidedly a place for nonprofessional forestry instruction as a part of the undergraduate college curriculum. Numerous colleges are giving such instruction. The work done at Massachusetts State College illustrates the field to be occupied and the objectives to be aimed at. One important part of the field is the laying of a good foundation for later professional education elsewhere, through a preparatory college course of preprofessional study. The general character of the courses of instruction offered is briefly outlined.
