Forestry Research in Great Britain


    IN days gone by, research work in connexion with forestry was regarded by the average forest officer, whether administrative or executive in grade, as of little practical value only by the few was the idea even held that such work might have an academic value. That this was the accepted point of view throughout the greater part of last century can be readily ascertained by studying the work of the various forestry departments in European countries. Outside Europe, India and Japan may be instanced as examples where the same ideas prevailed amongst senior forest officers.
