The vast forested areas of Latin America are a little tapped and perhaps not completely evaluated reserve in the world forest resource picture. The development of professional training for foresters in those countries is, therefore, a vital first step in the ultimate utilization and management of South American forest resources. Excluding the Chilean school discussed in this article, there are only two countries in the entire continent that have schools offering professional training in forestry--Venezuela and Colombia. Both are concerned with tropical forestry. The author tells here of the establishment of training at the University of Chile which will emphasize temperate zone forestry. At the time of his assignment there was a total of 12 Chilean professional foresters; six of these men secured their degrees in the U. S., the others in European schools.
