LEADERSHIP in forestry has passed through several eras, usually dominated by an individual or group of men who have been successful in having their ideas and objectives recognized. There are both positive and negative leaders - those who foster and promote and those who oppose. It is from the crucible of these competing elements that history selects those whose successes and failures are to be recorded. The different eras of leadership do not stand out in sharp relief. As each period has advanced there is a blending and mixing with the succeeding leaders who have, in turn, picked up the reins of progress.
