The purpose of these -meetings
is to wire not only ne owners of
the lands involved but any Inter
ested party the Opportunity to
present arguments either for or
against tb elaasitlcatfcni of Aay et
all the . lands tentativly listed.
Immediately following the hearing
a record of -the - proceedings to
gether wlttr the 'recommendations
of. the board -of forestry will be
.wferwarded to' the state- tax com
mission. It is then the-duty of the com
mission to review the records and
issue a final order either for or
geahtst the classification f any
or ell the laads. Shonki the deei-
eton be for' classification, the as
sessor is notified and be then
taust-olaoe the lands upon Aeepar

The lands then become-subject
to all provisions -of the law n
ItAsch -1 following. This includes
aQ? annual forest fee of tire eefttg
pet acre, together with a HM
p$r cent yield tax of the gross
yf&ld at the time the font crop
iaMianresied. Both the forest' fa
and the, yield tax go to the county
and are distributed as alt other

to include oely lands that dear

able for forest crop production.
An effort has also been made to
bieek the areas as mueh as pos
sible and to leave out all mar
ginal lands or other areas where
there to a possibility that It-might
be some day devoted to " agricul
ture or -seme -use other than the
production of timber crops.

that -being In Clatsop .county, last
February, 'at which time early
1H,00 eeTes were considered for
fiasslticatfon. Objections at that
time resulted In the rejection of
only 1.900 acres and this on the
grounds' that there were merchant
able -Talaes thereon. The balance
of the area has been passed upon
by the state "tax commission and
the lands are now on the asses
