The series comprises 3 volumes which furnish an account of the Forestry Board's committee meetings. In effect, the series documents the day-to-day decision-making processes of the board as well as the activities undertaken by the board in order to realise its statutory obligations.
The earliest minuted meeting extant in the series,13 Oct 1926, dates from when the board first began to exercise its core functions but pre-dates the Board's official establishment under legislation in 1931. The last minuted meeting, 17 Jul 1946, dates from shortly before the body's dissolution and the transferral of its core functions to the newly formed Board of Agriculture and Fisheries.
Activities detailed in the minutes include but are not limited to: the appointment of Board members including the Chairman and the Secretary; the approval of Foresters' wages; the appointment of Inspectors; the undertaking of survey work and the issuing of reports regarding the management of the forest crop; and the approval of expenditure in furtherance of the effective development and management of the Island's forest and woodland assets.
