Excerpt from Careers in Forestry As early as 1912, it is estimated, there were approximately 500 men in the United States with a greater or less degree of technical training in forestry. These were in addition to forest rangers who began without a technical background, but who through their own experience in national and State work' had acquired considerable practical knowledge of certain phases of the subject. The importance of proper training now and in the future for a career in the field of forestry cannot be overestimated. As the num ber of foresters steadily increases and competition becomes more keen, thorough education will become more and more necessary.
