This study integrates an account of the federal governments role in Canadian forestry, emphasizing its contribution to the science and technology of fire protection, inventory, and sylviculture, with a broader analysis of forest management in Canada. By linking the evolution of federal policy to a history of the organization now known as the Canadian Forest Service, and relating this political-institutional focus to the process of innovation the in the above fields, this study seeks to contribute to the understanding of forest exploitation and conservation. The narrative devotes particular attention to the development of forest fire prevention, detection, and suppression procedures. Author: Richard A. Rajala Published: 2005
