The interest in nature in the world literature has created a trend called ecocritism since the 1990s. Yaşar Kemal, as a writer, marked the history of Turkish literature and observed the society and the nature he lived in the way that meticulousness of a scientist and reflected it in his works. Yaşar Kemal worked as a columnist and interviewer in Cumhuriyet Newspaper between 1951 and 1963. 50 Days in the Burning Forests has been first published as an interview series in the newspaper and then has been published as a book by Foresters’ Association of Turkey. This study proposes to make inferences about forests and forestry of the period based on the 50 Days in the Burning Forests. The work shows that the forests in the Mediterranean and Aegean regions were largely destroyed by antropogenic impact. The state forest management started from 1937 but the last examples of contractor management continued until 1945. State forest enterprises tried to protect forests while producing. However, the traces of the contractor management of the pre-1937 period and rural poverty continue forest destruction. In that period, burning, peeling and cutting the trees to get agricultural land, cutting of the trees on private lands, illegal tree cutting and goat grazing in the forests were the most important forest degradation types.
