Abstract: The New Zealand School of Forestry at the University of Canterbury has started a campaign to increase the intake of undergraduates. The school is into the second year of implementing a marketing plan, the main objective of which is to see 40 first year students enrolling in forestry science and 12 second year students in forest engineering. We believe this is a realistic and responsible target from the point of view of the employment opportunities available to our graduating students. As a generalisation, our forestry science students enjoy the outdoors and many are also interested in the environment. Some have a family connection to forestry. At high school they might enjoy biology or geography and have a reasonable aptitude for mathematics. Each year there are probably more than 40 students who fit this profile and complete their high school education and who would enjoy a forestry education and career in forestry.
