The implementation of exclusionary techniques to enhance growth displaced many people from their lands.

2 million rupees for the entire Indian forest department in 1880 (Ribbentrop 1896: 70)1 Actual revenues came nowhere near these optimistic estimates. 34 The district collector of Malabar, Mr. Connolly, initiated the Nilumbur teak plantations in 1842. 35 To guide forestry practice, Connolly specified seven types of rules which resembled some of the prescrip- tions for protection that Brandis was to create in Burma a decade later. These rules addressed issues of planting, inventory, felling, contractual arrangements, monitoring, enforcement, and personnel.

68 Power/Knowledge Traill's main contribution to the government of forests was to assert state control over all areas from which timber was extracted. At this time, government income from forests was based on a contractual system. Contracts could assume two forms: areas of land could be farmed out to landowners or tax collectors after the payment of specified dues or they could be leased to private timber contractors, who paid the government a fee on the timber they harvested.
