Development of Country.
Tiie Government during the past
year I as furnished $75,000 woi-'.n of
imber to settlers, ami ranchers in
or or near the reserves, without
charge. One of the regulations of
he Forest Service, provides that
legitimate applicants may secure
what, limber thev need bv what is
:v'euieii!',y called thev "free use"
pnvileee. I' litem thousand per
mittees in this wav obtained timber
o supply their wants. '
From these figures it may readily
tie seen that the settlers are secur
ing verv material assistance without
ost from the forest reserves, At
the same time, the Tree use business
has been so handled that the materia
an (Hit has improved the condition
if the forest. Dead timber which
would otherwise have rotted or hclp-
d to spread forest fires lias been
cniiived lirst of all Where it was
necessary for the settlers to have
green wood the rangers, so far as
possible, marked trees which were
supressed, diseased, or from son c
oilier cause no longer in a condition
for further growth. In this way the
ramliers secured material which
they desired, and at the same lime
the forest was left, stocked with the
thriftiest trees, whose chance to de
velop will be unhindered.
I'he greatest amount of free use
was cn those reserves which lie in
the semiarid parts of the West,
where is least timber. On a number
of reserves the value of the material'
for which permits were issued ex-
ct eded $3,000, and on the Wenaha
Reserve in Washington and Oregon,
the Bear River Reserve in Utah and
alio, and the Wiser and Henrys
Lake reserves in Idaho it exceeded
$4,000. If there had ben no restric
tion the set tlers in securing Ibis ma
tei ial, great waste would have re
sulted, becauae the settlers would
have paid no attention to the future
good of 'he forest or its value as a
protective covering. Another dis
tine t advantage of the svstem is that
a settler, when he has secured his
periin'., is sure ot being able to gel
the material from the locality assign
ed to him without interference from
Very little change in the handling
of the free use business is conteiup-
ited for the next year. The ex
pel ii'iice of the past year has shown,
however, that methods cao be sys
tematized so as to give yet better
service to the people and be more
economical to ttie 1-orcst service.
This branch of the work of the
Forest. Service gives good evidence
of the fact that the aim in the ad
ministration of the forest reserves is
to aid in the permanent development
of the country and place only such
restrictions on the cutting of tinil.er
as are necessary for the mainter.iince
of a permanent timber supuly and
tiie conservation of watci needed for
irrigation, for cities, and for the
genoratiou of power.
The free-use privilege has been
granted freely to ranchers who are
building up homes, and enough tim
ber will be reserved to supply their
wants even if this will considerably
reduce the amount of timber tliat
can be sold.
