This volume, compiled by two former members of Uganda’s forestry department, provides both a historical record and a bank of authoritative experience for those involved in forestry and land management today. Many of the situations the authors describe are still faced by today’s foresters, and valuable lessons can be learned from the experiences of the l950s and early 1960s. For example the shortage of saw-timber is accelerating and ways of meeting this deficit are still being considered. Encroachment and the costly demarcation of boundaries are a continuing headache. The preparation of management plans, the training of staff and the advantages and problems of devolution of management responsibilities to local governments remain of central importance. Those involved with similar concerns in other tropical countries will also find this book invaluable.
