Abstract:     
Historians such as Richard Grove and Gregory Barton have emphasized the central place of “empire forestry” in the emergent environmentalism of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Two themes in their work are engaged in this book chapter: One, the role of forestry in the imperial environmental mind in combating climate change; the other, the relationship between state and private property in the legal management of forests. The history of Palestine forest law may lead to modification of the conventional wisdom on these issues, demonstrating how scientific and legal unknowns may channel forest policy in undesirable directions.
