No profession can rise much higher than the schools that train men for that profession. The discussion at the Annual Meeting of the Northwest Scientific Association is evidence of the broad and intense interest in the general subject of forest education. Educational problems are difficult problems for which there are no easy solutions. It seems clear that before solutions are found it will be necessary to deal with concrete evidence rather than with generalities. Nevertheless, the following summary gives a picture of at least one rather large and diversified group's conception of forest educational problems.
