Abstract
The scope of this Paper has been restricted to the consideration of mature productive forests in which the introduction of planned management is recent. The necessity for brevity precludes a detailed account of the experiments on which the opinions expressed are based. The practice of silviculture has been revolutionized using arboricides (3 per centfinopal DT in heavy diesel) to kill unwanted trees; this type is employed in preference to arsenical compounds because it is not lethal to man or animals, and the cost is not prohibitive.
