The possibilities of employment for foresters are unlimited here in the South, and the forestry consultant is very busy in his role of industrial forester. A contultant may confine his activities within a specialized field or within a small area, but the forester who supervises active woodland operations in the capacity of "operating forester" must be prepared to asist with nearly every phase of the work which is encountered by the timber industry and travel over portions of one or more states. It is possible for everyone who is associated in the forest industry to secure work within his chosen field of interest, and the consultant who selects the forest management field is guaranteed most interesting work in coping with the problems of river bottomland, upland, and coastal sites.
