The Indian Forest Service

Article metrics


THE passing of the British forest officer from India, where a succession of young men possessing that British intuitive love of an open-air life, with a touch of the adventurous in it, has built up a magnificent forestry property for India, merits a record. It has been a work which has had a minimum of publicity, due perhaps to the failure of the forest officer (until comparatively recently) to write for the public.
