Effects of the first Swiss Forest Law of 1876 on the silvicultural condition of mountain forests in Switzerland

Schweizerische Zeitschrift fur Forstwesen 125(12): 895-905

Effects of the first Swiss Forest Law of 1876 on the silvicultural condition of mountain forests in Switzerland

(Cf. preceding abstract) Discusses, in general terms, the introduction of rational forest management, with special reference to the reckless exploitation that preceded it, and contrasts the present situation of under-utilization with its equally urgent problems.
