TIMBER SUPPLY OF
THE UNITED STATES
What Will Be And What Been Done
With It Work Of American
The total wooded area in the
United States 1b estimated at 1,094,
514 square miles, or about 099,500,
000 acres, which Is 36 per cent of
the total land area, exclusive of
Tho lumber industry Is fourth
among tho great industries of the
Unltod States. According to tho cen
sus of 1900, tho total capital invested
n lumber enterprises was $611,611,
642, tho total number of wage earn
ers employed was 283,260, and tho
yearly wages paid amounted to ?104,
640,691. The amount of lumber
produced by the mills was 35,084,
166,000 board feet. Tho valuo of
lumber products Is estmnted to have
Increased 29 per cent during the past
At the present rate of cutting, the
forest lands of the United States can
not long meet the enormous demands
mado upon them. Tho great pine
ries of tho Lake States have been al
most entirely eliminated, and great
Inroads have been made in the sup
ply of valuable tlmbor throughout all
parts of tho country.
A long stop forward in the preser
vation of forests for purposes of
permanent 'timber supply and the
protection of watersheds and grazing
lands was mado, when, on February
1, 1905, the transfer of tho adminis
tration of the National forest re
serves from tho Department of tho
Interior to tho Department of Agri
culture was mado. This was the
culmination of tho movement toward
tho preservation of tho country's
tlmbor supply, which began in 1876
with the appropriation of ?2,000 for
tho investigation of timber condi
tions. Under the present manage
ment of tho National forest reserves,
tho area of which on October 12,
1905, amounted to 97,192,573 acres,
is undertaken by tho Forest Service
of tho U. S. Department of Agricul
ture Tho specific policy of the Forest
Service in tho management of the re-
aorves will bo to dovoto all land to
its most productive use, for the per
manent good of the whole people,
and not for tho temporary benefit of
Individuals or companies. All the
resources of tho forest reserves are
for uso, and this use should be
brought about , in the most prompt
and business-like manner, under such
restrictions only as will enforce the
permanence of these resources. The
permanence of the resourcs of the re
serves Is lndlspenslblo to continued
prosperity, and the policy of the For
est Service will Invariably be guided
by this fact.
In addition to the management of
tho National forest reserves the For
est Service carries on extensive lines
of forest work throughout the coun
try. It cooperated in work with
private individuals, work which not
only benefits the Individual, but Is
also of help to many other people
Frjm the beginning of this coopera
tives work in 1898, an insistent de
mand has affected a broadening of its
bcoW until now it affords assistance
notfonly in the preparation of work-
ng plans, but in tree planting, and
n discovering the most conservative
nd profitable use of tho products of
'e forest. Cooperative State forest
udios are another development of
this branch of the work of the Ser
vice Further, it attacks independ
ently those urgent forest probloms
whoso solution by private enterprise
Is impossible, and thus becomes a
national duty. Such problems are
dcndrological studies, studies of com-
erclal trees, timber tests, and ex-
ents with preservatives for
ting railroad ties, and telephpne
ad telegraph poles.
New York was tho first state to
take nctlvo measures for forest pres
ervation. In 1885 it established a
forest preserve. It has, at the pres-
i ent time, a forest, fish and game com
mission, upon which devolves the en
forcement ojf tho forest, fish and
game laws, the management of the
forest preserve, and the acquisition
of lands by the state. In 1897 pro
vision was made to enable the state
to gain control of all, or as much, of
tho Adrlondack region as might be
advisable, and $1,000,000 was ap
propriated for the purpose In sub-
equent years similar apporpriatlons
ave been made, and the acquisition
f land has been continued.
Pennsylvania has recently been
ost active In taking measures for
he preservation of its forests. In
897, this State, to conserve the
ater supply, provided for tho pur-
haso of three forest reserves, of not
83 than 40,000 acres each, at the
eads of the three principal river sys-
ms of tho state. In accordance
been rapidly acquired, until, at the
present time, tno holdings of Penn
sylvania amount to moro than 600,
000 acres. In 1901, Pennsylvania
made Its burean of forestry, formerly
suDordlnnte organisation of tho
Pennsylvania Department of Asri
culture, a separate departtnew. The
state has established a school of for
est wardons, and In its legislation of
1897 tookTlgoMms action with refer
ence to tho fort-re problem.
Minnesota loa took the lead In
the excellence ot n rorert-flro law, it
being tho first Ut to oppoinfc a Are
warden. Main and New Hamrshfro
are tho other tate pa9otns ex
cellent flro laws. New Tort In 1Q.
also made provision for a ohtef Are
warden. In 188J Michigan appointed
a commission to study the torst
question, and to select Inn tot a
state forest reserve. Wisconsin ban
also taken the iaAtlatlve srtcps toward
the adoption of an advanced forest
policy. Indiana took an Important
step forward wta tb state hold
forth encouratynt to private wn
ers to plant trees. Callfornta has
manifested great Interest In- forest
preservation. Under n appropria
tion of the leglstatar of Wie jstate a
study of Its farest resources has
been undertakes, n Is now In
progrtss in co-operation with the
Forest Service A state forester has
recently been appointed.
