A study of the forest operations and wood products industries was conducted in Atlanta and Seattle by the National Society of Professional Engineers. Included among these industries are tree development, crop and land management, logging, material handling transportation, cutting, peeling, assembly, pulp and paper, mobile homes, construction, furniture, and marketing. Intensive job development efforts will result in job placements for displaced aerospace professionals in the following areas, which have the most job openings: (1) industrial housing manufacture, (2) construction engineering, (3) safety and health, (4) mill management, (5) manufacturing engineering, and (6) material engineering. Approximately 165 new positions are projected during 1972 for engineers in forest and wood products industries, with the employment requirements tripling in subsequent years.
