Opportunities in Forestry
In spite of recent pessimism among foresters as to the future of wood, it still remains a basic and indispensable raw material for military and industrial uses alike. Sustained yield management of our forests to meet not only our own needs but those of other countries is one of the essentials for the establishment of an enduring, people's peace. This will require some measure of public control, in which local communities as well as higher levels of government should participate; technical skill; and recognition of the economic interdependence of the nations of the world. An immense field of service lies before American foresters who, more truly than those of any other nation, will be available and trained for leadership in organizing and manning the forest and wood-using division of a great world economic federation.
