Forestry: a Study of its Origin, Application and Significance in the United States

    Abstract

    IN this book, the two authors, well-known members of the staff of Cornell University, set out to discuss the present-day economic problems of the forestry question in the United States. They state that they were encouraged to undertake the work by “the tremendous interest which many people have taken in the country's forestry problem, and by the need of orienting the public, particularly the younger generation in schools and colleges, in the important economic aspects of this problem”. These words might equally well have been written for Great Britain, with the exception that instead of having the forestry problem restricted to one country, ours is scattered all over the world, the most important work being outside the small island of Great Britain.
