Gianelloal, Ifeirr F'orestry By The Great South ern Lumber Company Boga lusa, La. The Great Southern Lumber Company has been studying the question of forestry four or five years. Several times within that period Mr. M. L. Alexander, Commissioner of Conservation of this State has prevailed on us to send representatives to Urania, Louisiana to observe the work in reforestation and conservation of young trees carried on by Mr. Henry E. Hardtner, under the supervision of the Forestry Divi sion of this Department. We had, of course, learned something of Mr. Hardtuer's advanced ideas concerning the utilization of out over pine lands for reforestration. We have visited Mr. Hardtner's place more than once during the last year or two and largely due to what we have learned from these demonstrations, have ar rived at some definite conclu. sions, and adopted certain poli cies which we think are workable and permanent. These, we are. now practicing on our own lands,. SEED TREES A few years ago we left stand ing as we thought, sufficient old trees to reseed the land. Exper ience has taught that these large trees are not successful. Nearly all of them have either died or blown down. The cause of death in some cases being electric storms, but principally, no doubt, it has been due to a beetle, which was pointed out to us by Mr. Crag hean, Entomologist, in the ser vice of the United States Govern. ment. Subsequently we have re. lied on the small trees left behind the logging crews to supyly seed in the future. A great many of these small trees, especially when the land was out-over in the hot smmmer months, have died from the same cause. The cutting away of the other timber, many times bruised incident to the logging operation, sufficiently weakened the trees left Landing rendering them susceptible to the attack of this particular kind of beetle. We have now adopted a method of clearing all the slash from around the small trees left stand inrg and in addition we are enter ing the forest in advance of the cutting, locating our seed trees in schools or clusters, painting a ring around them. Instructions are given to the men to leave the seed trees thus selected untouch ed. This is being done on the theory that reforestation by nat ural seeding methods will be far more economical than by artifl oial plantings., ARTIFICIAL SEEDING. Experimentally, we have fenc ed 800 acsores of denuded area near Bogalusa, non-agricultural lands, most of which we have plowed in rows eight feet wide running East and West; from four to six furrows plowed to each row. This we are planting to slash and lob lolly. We believe that within fifteen years, outtings can be made on this planted plowed area for pulp wood. We have collected some four or five hundred pounds of loblolly seed which we are now sowing on the plowed area, At the sugges tion of Mr. Austin Cary, and taking advantage of this year's wonderful seed orop,-we have also collected three thousand pounds of long leaf pine seed, We expect to scatter these long leaf seed on non-agricultural areas of denuded land where Mr. F'orbes, State Forester, thinks there is not sufficient seed trees left to Warrant a hope of natural reproduction, Our Purchasing Department Ilt tbt tiggeupus to sMtlre prices on wire fencing, As soon as we can secure this, five thous and acres more laud will be fenc. ed and where this year's seed fall did not properly seed the ground we will do artificial seeding. LAND CLASSIFICATION The. Great Southern Lnmber Company has applied to the Fed eral Government for technical men to make a geological survey of their lands in order to have the record of experiments as to its merits for farming and reforesta. tion. We propose to see such as should he used for agricultural purposes and use for reforesta tion the rest of it. FIRE CONTROL We think that the usual annu al grass fires is the greatest enemy to the rapid reproduction in pine tries. The cut-over areas are even more apt to burn over than timbered lands. The Foreetry Division of the Conservation De partment of our State Govern m.nt has during the past. three or four years, accomplished a great deal of good in the State, includ ing this section, through its pa. tr,,imetnt who have created no smalt interest throughout the re gio)n, in the part of resident far wers, in trying to control and prevent the woods grass fires. Availing ,urselves of the grow. ing .ertimr:nt thus created, we have carried on a publicity cam paign through the local papers and lecturea in the public schools, and exhil,its at the county fairs, all in an endeavor to teach the evil and damaging effects to the country, generally caused by in discriminate woods fires. We have many reamons to feel en. couraged at the growing senti ment. We o,n lNever hope to be thoroughly successful in control ing and preve'tting fires on our own lands until the citizens and residents of the country generally have about the same views on the subjaoct held by ourselves. If we are right there should be no good reason why they should not be come equally interested. In the main, this question of fires con trol is educational. Then there are the hogs which come in for no small consideration. Our policy therefore, in these matters is to co-operate with ani back up the work of the conser. vation forces of the State and Na. tion. We will not win in a day nor a year, but most surely we will win and when we do win everybody else will win along with us. PINIE FOR PULP AND PAPER Locally speaking, the Great Southern has rather unique plans for the future of Bogalusa, and the manufacture of forestry pro duots here. Already the waste of logging has certainly been re duced to the minimum by the use of the mill waste and tree tops be hind the cutting in the manufac ture of pulp and contain liners. Not only do they use all the waste from the mill but some purchases of pulp wood are made from the farmers to show the value of tree growing for pulp. Even among the land owning farmer class con tiguous to the N. O. G0, N, Rt. R less than 25per centof their land is cultivated in ordinary farm orope, It is doubtful if a larger per Gent is beat adapted to agri oulture. They are, therefore, being shown that the poor ,ugged and waste sacres oan-be profitably used in growing fast loblolly pine trees for pulp, This Company has visions of additional paper mills sufioient in siae and number to make a ready market for all the wood for sale in easy shipping distance of Bogalusa. HIenoe, the appeal to all the farmers to make tree growing a iMt of ario itore la all 1te growing section. We certainly do not encourage and emphasize farming and the production of food crops any less, but the pro duction of tree crops more. Agri cultural lands should certainly be utilized in the production of food and feed. The Great Southern Lumber Compiany, Department of Forestry and Cut-Over Lands. Thompson Stresses Need of Less Production. Following the receipt here of advices from London stating that English spinners had reduced their working hours from 48 to 24 per week, thus curtailing the de mand for raw cotton abroad. W. B. Thompson of New Orleans, chairman of the Louisiana Divi. sion of the American Cotton As sociation, declared Friday that the move on the part of English manufacturers emphasized the n"ed fir an equal it not greater cutting of production of the eta pie of the South. Mr. Thompson's statement fol. lows: "If the conditions in the British spinning industry justify such curtailment in production of goods, then it follows that the cotton situation here demands an equal or greater reduction in the production of raw cotton. "In fact the producing and credit agencies of the South will, as a matter of determination, as well as necessity, see to it that an astonishingly small crop will be produced next year, regardless of whether the present depressing market factors are artificial, actu. al or by design. "A thirteen million bale crop soon will be a thing of the past. A five or six million bale crop will be the order of production until the spinners of the world are able or willing to pay the farmer a living price for his product." IT ISN'T FAIR THAT'S ALL!
