About this book

Forester's Legacy presents the biography of a forester and philanthropist devoted to bringing the benefits of forests to all people. Despite humble beginnings, Joseph E. Ibberson pursued his vision persistently, working hard at an early age and saving his meagre earnings to finance his professional forestry education. In his work with the Pennsylvania's Bureau of Forestry, he brought about many innovations that modernised the management and preservation of the state's valuable forestland. Having acquired wealth through wise investments, he later donated large properties as conservation areas and endowed professorial chairs in forestry at Penn State. This is the success story of a man with a mission to preserve the state's most valuable resource.
