British colonial forest history in India emerged as an important filed of research in the last three decades. Fascinating historical accounts have been brought out by historians focusing on different regions of India. Penetrating analysis on ecological impact of colonial rule has been brought out by several studies. The observable fact however is that the role of the native press in engaging with issues related to forest policies remained a less focused domain. This paper focuses on the role of the native press in making public opinion on forest policy issues and the impact they exercised on forest policy process in Madras Presidency.
