AMID THE SNOWS AND SWAMPS OF TROPICAL AFRICA 177 l'hotograph by the Rev. Arthur J. Orner AN OASIS OIF FOREST IN TIII; SOUTI AFRICAN VIIDT Large timber is scarce in South Africa. Therefore the Silinda forest, covering two and one-half square miles, in the Melsetter district of Southern Rhodesia, is highly prized. The parklike Knysna forest, near the Cape, is probably the principal stand of timber in the south, while a struggling growth extends up the east coast to the Zambezi River.
