Abstract:Zimbabwe's indigenous forests played an important role in the development of the colony. This paper presents the history of forestry in Zimbabwe covering the period from the beginning of the 20th century, when the first steps in the adoption of a forest policy were taken by the government, up to 1954, when the Forest Service became an autonomous body known as the Forestry Commission. The paper draws on information from the official yearbooks of Southern Rhodesia for the periods 1890-1923 and 1924-1928. [ASC Leiden abstract]
