A survey located 75 two-year forest technician schools in 28 states during 1980-1981. Total enrollment was 4,200 to 5,000 students, with 1,450 to 1,750 graduates expected in 1981. Of 1980 graduates, 71 percent had found jobs in forest technology by early 1981, and 8 percent had other employment. Industry was the main employer but took a smaller percentage of the graduates than in 1978, 1979, and 1980, when similar surveys were made. Starting salaries averaged higher than in 1979.
