Norwegian Laws Concerning Protection Forests and the Prevention of Forest Destruction
Abstract:Norway guards her protection forests with great care. Legislation affecting the handling of such forests has been in effect for nearly forty years. Frequent revision has been necessary to fit the laws to needs and to overcome local objections. What a private owner can do on his own land is rigidly circumscribed by law. A study of the author's recitation of the circumstances leading to the present law indicates that forest legislation is not a simple matter.
