Where do forests come from? Where should they come from? One hundred years ago, most people assumed that humans would never stoop to plant a tree in British Columbia. Life as a tree-planter is hard work, so why are so many modern forests planted by people? The answer to this question can be found in the years just after the First World War. Join David Brownstein to find out what happened. David is the Principal of Klahanie Research Ltd. and he has taught at UBC in the Departments of Geography, History, and the Canadian Studies Program. This talk will change the way that you think about forests and what they mean.
