Post-War Forestry in Great Britain


    A LITTLE more than a year ago, the recommendations of H.M. Forestry Commissioners on the Post-War Forest Policy of Great Britain were reviewed in Nature (Sept. 25, 1943, p. 337). Their report (Cmd. 6447) was debated in both Houses in July 1943, receiving very general commendation and but little criticism. Meanwhile, the proposals have been receiving close attention from all who are especially interested in forestry, professionally or otherwise, and a good many reports and articles have appeared on the subject in newspapers and technical publications. Early this year, the Forestry Commissioners, after discussions with five of the leading societies interested in forestry, published a supplementary report on Private Woodlands (Cmd. 6500). A report on forestry policy has now been issued jointly by the Royal Scottish and Royal English Forestry Societies (Post-war Forestry, 1944)*, which include large numbers of woodland owners in their membership.
