I've been a forestry consultant for 20 years and have never seen a 
"history of silviculture", just different bits of information that were 
in my various textbooks. But I haven't been in contact with academic 
forestry so there may be something out there.

My understanding is that silviculture goes back to central Europe in the 
middle ages. Supposedly many of the old records are still extant.

I hope someone can give a reference- preferably an online reference for 
what you're looking for- as I'd be interested also.
