Excerpt from The New Forestry: Or the Continental System Adapted to British Woodlands and Game Preservation

One great drawback to good forestry in this country is the great number of small estates on which the extent of woods is too small to employ a skilled forester, and which are neglected accordingly, though contributing largely to the supply of home-grown timber felled annually. Great mistakes are made and losses sustained on such small estates in the planting and tending, and in the selling of the timber periodically disposed of for the benefit of the proprietor. We have known many ?agrant examples of this kind. A very little knowledge of forestry, or a little assistance from a qualified forester, would prevent such mistakes and failures, or, as in Germany (where many of the common and other woods not belonging to the State are supervised by a Government forest officer), a number of small estates containing timber might combine to secure the occasional services of a competent forester at a tri?ing cost to each owner and much to his advantage. County Councils now provide horticultural and agricultural teachers, and there is no reason why they should not take similar steps with regard to forestry. The writer is quite sure, from careful enquiry into the matter both in this country and abroad, that some such provision as this would result in an improved state of affairs and an enormous increase, before long, in the quantity of timber produced and improvement in its quality and value.

Another question of far-reaching consequence to the owners of woods is that of game preservation on well-wooded estates. Until a radical reformation is made in the present system of gamekeeping, in connection with the management of woods and plantations, there will be difficulty in carrying out any system of forestry to a successful issue. The subject has not been as fully dealt with in forestry books as it might be, and a chapter is devoted to it in this work in which the state of affairs is explained and suggestions offered for the future.
