. Forestry Work. By W. H. Whellens. (T. Fisher Unwin.

8s. 6d. net..)—This is a practical little book; describing, clearly the principles of forestry for the many beginners who, it is to be hoped, will take up this industry before the war comes to an end. Our woods are being cleared at such a rate that there- will soon be very few trees left in the countryside, and the problem of replanting is becoming an urgent one.: Mr. Whellena's- book is therefore timely and useful.
