Dendrology Education in the United States
Abstract:A survey was made of dendrology instruction at professional and technician forestry schools in the United States. In continuation of trends noted earlier, total instructional time has declined 20 percent since 1965 and most schools now require only one term of dendrology. Schools in the East require the most credits in the subject and cover the most species. Course content varies widely, and there is overlap in every respect between courses taught at professional and at technician schools.
