POBEDITELI  Soldiers of the Great War

A History of Russian Forestry and its Leaders

V. K. Teplyakov, Ye. P. Kuzmichev, D. M. Baumgartner, and R. L. Everett

Dedicated to the 200th
anniversary of the creation
of the Forest Department in Russia

"Forestry is the child of necessity."
(G. F. Morozov)

"...Until now the Russian contribution has been ignored by the creators of forestry in Russia, undoubtedly to the great detriment of the field. You will never see a quote from Maier, Teploukhov, Bode, Skarzhinski or Levis in our forestry textbooks. There is much we could learn from the work of these men."
(A.F. Rudzky)

"The classical works, even when they have become out-dated in some respects, are, in essence, always young and always serve to inspire the reader ...In general, we are barely familiar with our masters, and we study them almost never."
(G. F. Morozov)
