Manual of Forestry, Vol. 4 : Forest Protection (Classic Reprint)


Excerpt from Manual of Forestry, Vol. 4: Forest Protection Dr. W. Schlich, has allowed the present book to form Volume IV. Of his manual OF forestry. For this favour I have therefore to thank him, as well as for the kind advice and assistance he has always readily afforded me during the progress of the work. This treatise on forest protection, the full scope of which is explained in the Introduction, is an adaptation for English readers of'the well-known German forstschutz, by Dr. Richard Hess, Professor of Forestry at the University of Giessen, in Hesse Darmstadt, to whom I am most grateful for permission to utilize his book and its illustrative plates. I have found it at times necessary to deviate from the original, especially in the chapters on Forest Offences and Rights and Forest Insects, so as to render them more serviceable for English readers. I have also, wherever practicable, exemplified the subject-matter from Britain and India, so that the book might be specially useful to British and Indian foresters.
