Please note in the job description below Research appears to
be the key responsibility of an Assistant, Associate or Full
Professor of Silviculture.  This explains why graduates of
this countries higher education system spend the first 2-3
years of their Forestry Profession learning their
Profession. 

Check out the Responsibilities section, good grief a
one-week summer field course! God forbid if forestry
students actually spend some time in the woods!
