I am writing a feature that addresses this.  Foresters tend to want to
work in the woods and would love nothing better than to avoid
communicating.  They majored in something that would take them to the
woods, not the press room.

You have touched on one of the greatest weaknesses of the forestry
profession...communication.  Foresters need to be taught a little about PR
and how to communicate.  Unfortunately, IMHO, this is not being taught in
major forestry schools.
