History of silviculture on public lands


There are many instances in scholarly activity where the writing of a colleague is made more vivid when one knows him or her personally—and Eric Zenner’s essay is certainly no exception! I can see Eric at a podium of a forestry school in the United States or Europe, emphatically proclaiming that “Silviculture is the pen with which our profession writes, but too often silviculturists have writer’s block!” In this essay, he offers a compelling and entertaining development of the historical perspective of the evolution of silviculture in Europe and North America, especially in reference to the management of public forestlands.
