The Forest Academy in the town of Tharandt, Germany, is the oldest school of forestry in Germany, established in 1811. Also called the “Royal Saxon Forestry Academy,” the school is one of the great centers of forestry in the world. The immense seedbeds of young trees fill the foreground of the image, while some of the academy buildings are visible in the back. Representatives from the Conservation Department visited here to learn forestry and agricultural techniques. This image was created to record the agricultural research performed by the New York State Conservation Department.
