Forestry excellence means excellent foresters. And who are they? They are persons able to contribute substantially toward meeting professional goals for the years ahead. And so, from the vantage point of the present, let's look ahead at professional goals. As forecasting, this is a tricky assignment. But forecasting is the commonest human activity. Forecasting professional goals is a special obligation of students and their schools.
