KIRKUS REVIEW

A passionate, despairing cry for the conservation of our forests and trees throughout the world by a world student of the disasters caused by exploitation, waste and ignorance. He tells of wonder trees, of dust bowls, of the redemptive possibilities of silviculture, of the place of forests and trees in national as well as global economy, and he makes his point that men and trees live or die together through history and present times. He covers forestry matters throughout the world -- what has happened to a country's forests, what is happening now and what the prospects for the future are -- he shows the destruction of vast wealth in forests, and, where available, how controls and reclamation are working. A book for every conservation-minded reader, active groups and forestry students.
