Scope of Present Work. This work is the outcome of several years of Research into silvicultural problems at the Forest Research Institute, Dehra Dun, and at outlying experimental stations, combined with Observations recorded in many parts of India and Burma for a period extending over more than twenty years. My original intention was to publish, in the form of detached notes, only the results of my own investigations, confining my attention to a limited number of the more important forest trees. I was soon convinced, however, that a more useful Purpose would be served by including all trees, whether of special importance or not, which : have received even slight Study from a silvicultural point of view, adding to the results of my own investigations those recorded time to time by others. Such a course will enable future workers who may undertake the study of any particular Species of tree to ascertain what information is already available regarding it and to pursue their investigations along fresh lines. The importance of silvicultural research is now more fully realized in India than it was at one time, and in future years great development in research methods and in our Knowledge of the various Trees may be anticipated. In a vast Country like India, with an Infinite variety of climates and forest types and a rich array of tree species, the different species cannot be studied fully except in their own habitat, for which purpose decentralization of work will be essential before any appreciable Progress is made. From this point of view the present work may be regarded as nothing more than an attempt to pave the way for such research, or in other words as merely a foundation on which a more substantial edifice may be gradually built by future workers.
