Description: Philip C. Wakeley, a pioneer research scientist for the U.S. Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station in New Orleans, LA, began his career in 1924. He had an illustrious career with the Southern Station, and his research became the basis for the reforestation of the South’s devastated forests. Upon his retirement in 1964, he presented the Station a personal overview of his early research, station programs, and personalities of many early scientists. Never before published, this history presents an intriguing look at the development of forestry research in the South from the eyes of one of the Southern Station’s most prominent scientists.
Keywords: Forestry research, history of southern forestry, pine plantation management, reforestation of southern pines, seed and seedling physiology
