Independent study through correspondence instruction can be a valuable component of continuing forest education. Course work is available in almost any field that would interest a forester, including the natural, physical, and social sciences, business administration, quantitative methods, and environmental studies. Credit from most of these courses can be applied to the Continuing Forestry Education Program of the Society of American Foresters.
