Abstract

In the paper on " The Present and Future Prospects of
Timber in Tasmania," which I had the honour to read at a
meeting of the Royal Society of Tasmania, on the 29th
April, 1901, I ventured to express my firm conviction that
a Tasmanian School of Forestry and Agriculture was absolutely
necessary if the treasures of vegetable wealth which
exist in your Island are to be properly exploited, so as to
yield a remunerative return for the time, labour, and money
expended on them.
