THIS book consists of part of the material originally included in the author's “Practice of Sylviculture” considerably extended. To some extent, the outline follows European standard works. A notable departure, which in connexion with the United States is readily comprehensible, is that something near one half (117 out of 247 pages) of the book (Chapters viii-xiii) is devoted to forest fires, their suppression, control and so forth.
