Managing the forest: the conservation history of Lembus, Kenya, 1904-63
Conservation in Africa: people, policies and practice: 249-268
A review and discussion of the administration of this 130 sq. mile area of valuable economic forest land, scrub and bush areas, and a large number of glades. It was one of the largest and most favourable land concessions made to Europeans in Kenya. Conflicts of political, social and commercial interests are traced between indigenous Africans who wished to continue to utilize the resources of the forest, the commercial company that wished to exploit the forest without interference, and the colonial Forest Department which sought to control and conserve the forest in order to maintain a financial return while also sustaining the forest resource.
