Future educational needs in forest pathology at the undergraduate level for general foresters and at the graduate level for research and teaching careers in forest pathology are discussed. The growing importance of forest pathology in the effective management of forests and its role in the education of foresters is stressed. A general course in forest pathology is outlined and recommended as a required course in the curricula for general foresters. A discussion of the purposes and suggested subject content for M.S. and Ph.D. programs in forest pathology and their relationships to types of tree disease problems in forestry are given. It is indicated that complex tree disease problems and rapid scientific advances will direct increasing specialization. It is suggested that two areas of educational specialization at the doctoral level in forest pathology may emphasize ecological and physiological approaches to tree disease problems.
