Environment and History

Empire Forestry and American Environmentalism

Gregory A. Barton

Environment and History 6(2000): 187-203

This article examines the influence of empire forestry on the environmental movement in the United States. It particularly examines the British Indian forestry exemplar, and traces its influence on environmental thinking in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Three central American foresters, Franklin B. Hough, Charles Sargent and Gifford Pinchot, are examined to illustrate the link between empire forestry and the massive forest reservations that mark the beginning of modern environmental movement in the United States.
