Illustrated. 8vo, brown cloth, gilt lettering tofront board and spine. "The book was published in recognition of the 75th birthday of the Faculty of Forestry at the University of Toronto. The author discusses university education in forestry at Toronto, its background andthe people and events that have influenced its development from 1907 to th e present. Other matters that have influenced the development of forestry in Canada (especially Ontario), such as the fluctuations of the economy, government policies, and advances in technology are dealt with in careful detail. Canada's natural resources have made its past development possible; theexploitation of the apparently inexhaustible forests helped provide capita l assets and support industrial development. This exploitation reduced production on choice forest sites for the future and set the stage for the growing movement toward a more positive approach to forest management. The author's concern with the transition in forestry from exploitation to management of forest resources will be of interest to professionals in all areas of the forest industries." - from the dj.
