The influence of scientific forestry in southwestern Cameroon (today Southwest Province) is examined. A brief overview of the pre-colonial and German colonial periods (1885-1916) is provided to describe the beginnings of scientific forestry and how German ideas and institutions formed the foundation for subsequent forest policies. The main focus is on British rule (1916-1940), the period in which modern forestry expanded rapidly. The final section focuses on the intellectual 'construction' of scientific forestry and how the modern legacy continues to influence current forest policies and practices.
