Ames Forester


My target for these comments is neither forestry students nor alumni, but rather young people considering the forestry profession as well as parents, teachers and others who might provide counsel as career choices are considered. I am addressing students in secondary school who contemplate entering a university level professional forestry program between now and the end of the next decade, the year 2000. Thus, I am thinking of men and women who will look back on their own professional involvement from the 2040's. In a very real sense, this note must be a commentary on the future of forestry itself.
