With veterans returning from war, and with schools of forestry crowded as never before, jobs for foresters may become an urgent problem before our profession. Already some men are finding jobs difficult to find, though expansion of federal activities may soon bring additional openings. But if forestry is to expand in proportion to the national need for forest conservation many new fields of employment should be opened up. Of particular significance are jobs that create jobs either directly or indirectly. Believing that all foresters, especially the younger men, are interested in such new fields of employment, the editor plans to present a series of articles dealing with new job opportunities for foresters. The first article deals with an entirely new field. As the author implies, probably few foresters will ever find direct employment by labor unions, but the fact that one forester had the imagination to see this job opportunity and the courage and foresight to develop it, is significant. The editor will welcome suggestions from readers for future articles in this series.
