Imperial Ethos, Dominions Reality: Forestry Education in New Zealand and Australia, 1910-1965

Michael M. Roche and John Dargavel

Environment and History 14(2008): 523-43. doi: 10.3197/096734008X368420

The forces that started formal forestry education in Australia and New Zealand from 1910 and 1924 respectively are traced. The controversies and difficulties experienced by the forestry schools that were started are examined and the links between the two countries in forestry education are noted. Forestry education arose amidst inter-state jealousies, class divisions and personal animosities. It emerged in the 1960s as a truly university education that melded some of the ethos of imperial forestry with other philosophies in ways that could be applied in Dominion realities.
