Various estimates have been made of the number of men that might advantageously be employed in the management of the commercial forest area of the United States; but these estimates have for the most part been based on the assumption that practically all of this area needs to be restored and developed by such means as planting, fire-hazard reduction, wildlife management, erosion control, and road and fire-line construction, and that only this type of work needs to be done. In many regions, however, the harvesting and primary manufacture of the products of well-managed forests are of far greater importance, from the standpoint of manpower requirements, than are necessary and desirable restoration and development activities. Specific figures as to the possibilities in this direction are given by the author on the basis of his experience as manager of the Crossett Experimental Forest in Arkansas.
