Continuing Education and Certification of Silviculturists in the USDA Forest Service
Abstract:Various regions of the USDA Forest Service offer advanced training and certification of silviculturists. Each region developed its own program, usually in conjunction with one or more forestry schools. Though all programs have the central aim of improving applied silviculture, variations are wide. National standards, flexible enough to be adjusted to regional conditions, have recently been set.
