The founder of forest management in Finland, A.G. Blomqvist, travelled widely around the country when he was collecting data for growth and yield tables. He wrote detailed itineraries of his travels. He describes in his notes the forests and forest management practices, such as shifting cultivation, tar burning, felling methods and forest regeneration. The notes were a part of his assignment for the Forest Service in addition to the growth and yield tables. They help to understand the state of the forests at the time.
The Finnish Society of Forest Sciences acknowledges the value of A.G. Blomqvist’s itineraries and has decided to publishes them to prevent the texts to be forgotten.
