Is a forestry education worth it?
The Globe and Mail published a story yesterday about the problems facing university educations and shared interviews with innovators who are trying to solve these problems.
Within the comprehensive feature, there are statistics on those who chose a forestry education, and how their careers measured up to those who chose other University educations.
These stats are based on the 2006 census data. The combined average income of all listed fields (male and female) is $42,176
