    I PROPOSE to deal to-day with a brief exposition of the points on which the system of forestry education is based. It will be of interest, I think, first to glance briefly at the training to be obtained at some of the European forestry schools, and the facilities provided for giving it. We will then consider some of the things the student in forestry must know, and in this connection glance briefly at a few of the duties which confront the forest officer in the course of his ordinary work in India, concluding, finally, with a review of the present position of the university as regards forestry training and the steps which require to be taken to enable us to send out the class of British forester which is already required in many of our colonies, and for which we trust there will soon be a demand in the British Isles.
