FHS Issues Series

The Forest History Society Issues Series consists of booklets that bring a historical context to today's most pressing issues in forestry and natural resource management. FHS invites authors of demonstrated knowledge to examine an issue and synthesize its substantive literature. The Issues Series, like its FHS sponsor, is non-advocacy. These books aim to present a balanced rendition of often contentious issues. They are attractive, informative, and easily accessible to the general reader.

Single copies of Issues Series booklets are $9.95 (plus $4.00 shipping). Discounts are available if ordering 10 or more copies.
