Technical Requirements for a Forester in the Federal Service
Abstract:Problems dealing with the education and the personal qualifications of a forester have received considerable attention in recent issues of the Journal. This is both fitting and proper because no other single factor will so greatly affect the future progress of forestry in America as the training and abilities of men who are in, or preparing themselves for the profession. Mr. Koch properly maintains that forestry, irrespective of the governmental department in which it is practiced, is largely land management and that the proper management of forest lands requires a corps of men of professional, subprofessional, and nonprofessional grades. The educational requirements of the professional foresters are discussed in detail and it is concluded that the ultimate success of the individual depends not alone on his training but to a great extent on his intelligence and character.
