Are Forestry Schools Properly Training Men for Private Forestry and Industry?
Abstract:Forestry schools as a rule are not adequately training men for private forestry. Their curricula should be more realistically attuned to the requirements of the positions to be filled. Tree growing and land management are only a part of the forestry program because it is the various phases of utilization that are vital to successful forestry. The opportunities for work in forestry are great but forestry will continue along the same old rut as long as faculties are too restricted in their experience and lacking in vision.
