The Forests of India


THE third and final volume of “The Forests of India” is divided into two parts, the first of which deals with the period 1871–1900, and contains brief descriptions of the main features which affected progress in forestry in the different provinces. The period covered by this section of the book corresponds more or less to a definite stage in the development of Indian forestry. It is the period of reservation and demarcation of an area to be permanently maintained under forest.
