Empire forestry and the origins of environmentalism

Auteur :
BARTON, G.

Description :
Hard-headed environmentalists and legislators found in empire forestry a ready-made model to construct vast areas of the public domain as a ustensil for environmental and state purposes. The empire forestry matrix of government reservations, fire protection, and revenue-enhancing forests solved the tension between romantic preservationist notions and laissez-faire ideals and gave the compromise from which modern environmentalism emerged : it posed environmental problems and solutions as a means to construct the state.
