FORESTRY

DR. KAREL SIMAN, COUNCILOUR OF THE MINISTRY OF AGRICULTURE

The forests covering about one-third (33.16 per cent) of the total area of the country are a very important part of the natural wealth of the Czechoslovak Republic and an essential asset of its economic life. According to the official statistics for 1920, altogether about 4,661,133 hectares are covered with forests and woods. Thus Czechoslovakia has a forest area comparable to that of Finland, Sweden, Yugoslavia, or Austria, four of the most thickly wooded countries of Europe. The plan for a gradual afforestation of denuded or unproductive land will add an area of 400,000 hectares, so that in the near future the afforested area will exceed 5,000,000 hectares. Thus Czechoslovakia, a comparatively small country, has a forest area nearly four times larger than that of the United Kingdom, one million hectares larger than that of Italy, or over one half of that of France. The most richly afforested part of the Republic is the eastern part; Ruthenia with 635,367 hectares (50.05 per cent), Slovakia 1,658,635 hectares (33.84 per cent), and Silesia 154,324 hectares (34.91 per cent). The western agricultural provinces of the Republic which are also highly industrialized show smaller afforestation:
