The opportunities to increase employment through closer utilization of forest material have been treated largely in general terms. In this article the author provides a quantitative measure of these opportunities through the use of a concrete illustration. He selects an area to represent average conditions in the Douglas-fir region and compares employment under present standards of utilization with the possible employment under full utilization. He finds that employment in the forest industries could be doubled without any increased drain upon the forest growing stock.
