Are Forestry Schools Prepared to Train Wood Technicians?
Abstract:A heavy postwar demand for men adequately trained in forest utilization and wood technology is envisaged by this article. The author raises the question of whether the schools are ready to meet the challenge. He doubts it, and suggests (1) that arrangements be made with industry to give students apprentice training and (2) that forestry schools undertake a radical revision of their present programs of study. As a first step it is proposed that the Society take the initiative in bringing industry and schools together to consider the problem.
