The production of forestry doctorates in the United States appears to have leveled out at about 120 annually (excluding those in range and wildlife). Currently, 33 forestry schools offer Ph.D. or D.F. programs: one-third of the programs train two-thirds of the doctoral recipients. Certain schools predominate in particular disciplines, whereas in other disciplines the production is widely disseminated. Total demand for forest doctorates in traditional outlets seems likely to remain fairly constant. Some disciplines, however. have needs substantially beyond current production, whereas others may be in danger of overproduction.
