Consulting Foresters in the Pacific Northwest
Abstract:In 1986, 83% of an estimated total of 218 consulting foresters in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana were surveyed; 56% consulted full-time and 44% consulted part-time. In total, consultants provided 155 person-years of service to all owners. Most respondents believed the number of consultants in the areas they served was about right. Consultants averaged 24 years of forestry experience, including 10 years in consulting. Consultants belongs to a variety of professional and other organizations and most had completed at least a four-year degree. Consultants primary clients were nonindustrial private forest (NIPF) owners, industry, and federal government. In the last year, consultants provided 57 person-years of assistance to over 2,130 NIPF owners holding over 2 million acres. Most of these NIPF clients were assisted with services related to timber management or harvest. West. J. Appl. For. 3(3):74-76, July 1988.
