About Forest History Society Publications

The Forest History Society's publications include an amazingly wide variety of materials. Our Issues Series provides needed historical background on current issues in forestry and natural resource management. Our Forest History Today magazine, monthly newsletter, and quarterly Environmental History journal attract members worldwide. The Society also features numerous other books available for purchase, along with three documentary films, and more than 250 oral history interviews. Please explore this site further to introduce yourself to the interesting resources that the Forest History Society has to offer.

The Forest History Society's (FHS) mission weaves together three primary programs: (1) the identification and collection of primary source research materials; (2) the identification and publication of secondary sources of published scholarship; and (3) the dissemination of information that educates the public. Our goal of identifying and publishing scholarship in the fields of forest, conservation, and environmental history is met through the production of our own quarterly journal, books, oral history interviews, and Issues Series publications, and via our extension of financial, editorial, or research assistance to other authors publishing books in the same broad subject area. Our publication efforts are supported by the Lynn W. Day Endowment for Publications in Forest History and by funds from a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
