Recent Developments in Forestry Education in Europe
Abstract:Discussions of educational problems are always interesting. First hand observations of educational trends in nations where forest practices have become more stabilized than in America are doubly interesting. On his recent trip to Europe Professor Brown observed that in France and in Germany the period of training for professional foresters is much longer than in America. It is more than likely that American forest schools soon will find it necessary to increase the length of the course in order to give the student adequate training to meet the complex problems that will confront him.
