FORI ST REVENUE EXCEEDS
SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS
Nearly $37.5 million—a record
high— was deposited in the Federal
Treasury by 19 national forests in
Oregon and Washington during the
fiscal year ending June 30.
Regional Forester J. Herbert Stone
said today that the total amount col
lected this past year exceeds that of
the previous year by almost $7 mil
lion. Proceeds from timber sales con
tributed 99 percent of the total. Other
sources of revenue included fees for
grazing stock, land use rentals and
water power rights.
National Forest receipts nationally
also set a new record. They totaled
$75.5 million, an increase of $5 mil
lion over the previous year. About
$71 million of the total resulted from
timber sales. •
Twenty-five percent of national for

for distribution to counties in which
the forests lie. As prescribed by law,

penditures for operation and for main
tenance and development by almost
$24 million. A substantial share of
expenditures was invested in perma

During the year, a total -of 2,222
Forest Service timber sales were
made in Oregon. Of this number, 1,968
were for less than $5,900 each. In
Washington, 3,288 of 3,665 sales were
for under $5,000. In the two states
combined, only 11 percent of the total
number of sales exceeded $5,000.
In addition to the cash values rea
lized from national forests, there are
many intangibles that contribute to
local welfare, Regional Forester Stone
pointed out. Such vital resources as
pure water and recreation are good
examples, he said.
Leading the region in receipts for
the fiscal year just ended was the
Willamette National forest in Ore-
gon, which collected $7,052,040. Second
was the Olympic forest in Washington
with $4,885,053. Other forests with
receipts in excess of $2 million were
the Mt. Hood and Ochoco in Oregon
and the Gifford Pinchot and Mt. Ba
ker in Washington.
During the fiscal year, the Willam
ette National Forest made 370 tim
ber sales, all but 70 of which were
under $5,000. During this same per
iod, 422,152,000 board feet of timber
valued at $7,634,714.00 was cut. It is
interesting to note that this is enough
timber to build approximately 42,000
5-room houses. Fire, blowdown and
budworm infested timber accounted
for approximately 40 percent of the
volume cut. During the year, 1,985
acres were planted with Douglas-fir
and some pine seedlings. In addition,
225 acres were artifically seeded.
