The growth of forestry in India is directly related to a sound silvicultural knowledge of trees. Silviculture refers to certain aspects of the theory and practice of raising forest crops. Each tree has its own silviculture and to study that is important just as it is necessary to study its relationship with and reaction to other trees. The silviculturist is significant in fighting forest destruction as he is called on to reclothe denuded hill sides with forest and to stop the erosion of the soil and the burying of the agricultural lands down the valleys with sterile sand gravel and boulders. Foresters can usefully apply silviculture techniques in effectively preventing various destructive influences threatening the forest. This book is an essential text and a most resourceful manual in the study of silviculture of trees in India. 512 pp.
