$1.50 THE YEAR
Set People Straight Regarding
Burned Over Areas in
National Forests.
Bnt Common Sense to Permit
W« r Therein tn
Stock to Graze inereinto
Prevent Wastage
Thc attention of the Forest Service
has been called to an article entitled
"To Burn Timber", published In tlie
Lewiston Morning Tribune under a
stites date line. The story is likely to
In' confusing to people uninformed as j
I policy relative to hunied over .
A«i I
Nothing can present a more uninvit-.
ing appearance than a burned over
tract which before the fire was cover- j
ed with living trees, As the writer of
the story truly says, "the aera is ur.u
allv a mnss of standing and fallen
dead titular, crossing and recross, ig
each oilier in heaps, rendering it im
lossilde for horses or cattle to get
through the debris".
The article emphasises the fact that
certain townships have been thrown
nui of the reserve thus lxs-oniing sub
ject to entry and that settlers who
bave located these isolated tracts
are chiefly engaged in stock raising. |
Where ever land within a National
Forest is chiefly valuable for agrt
cultun* and not needcil for public pur
lioses it will ho opened for settlement
and entry' if » comprises an acreage
sufficiently large to constitute a practi
cal farm unit under the climatic and
other natural conditions affecting It.
However, only 11 very small iiereenf
age of National Forest land is of fids
character. Wlint is not such must be
administered for the accomplishment
of the purpose for which Congress au
thorized the establishment of the Na
tional forests. These purjioses are thus ;
stated in the law to "improve and pro
tect the forest within the reservation,
or for the purjiose of securing favor
able conditions of water flows, and to
furnish a continuous supply of timber
for the mes nud necessities of citizens
of the United States". It will lie noted
that the furnishing of pasturage for
livestock is not one of those purposes
and yet it is precisely for tlie increas
ing of imsturnge for tlie benefit of the
settlers who have located agricultural
lands, that the writer of the article!
would have burned over forest land
cleared up and seeded to clover and
other grasses i
muer grasses. „ „ ,
There is naturally an immense
amount of pasturage within the Nation- ;
al Forest whereon stock may graze
without interfering with the aecom- ;
Iilishment of tlie purjiose for which
the fori-sts are established. Where
this condition exists it Is nothing more
than common sense to allow stock to
