State Control of Cutting on Private Forests in Sweden
Abstract:The forestry profession for several years has discussed the need for or desirability of governmental control of timber cutting on privately owned forest land, and what form such control might take. It is commonly known that many European countries have rather strict legislation with respect to private forests. While traveling abroad during the summer of 1938, the author observed with much interest the legislation and means of enforcement used in Sweden. The accompanying article describes briefly the legislation and its operation.
