DWINDLING FORESTS FORGE DECREASED USE OF LUMBER (Sort Sv-5i:-Ki-tit-w..j, Amiced.Ora()m, rioini prompt is as much a virtue as beinff lion- Lnafins busy ln.'in. is the only thins,' that really tirrs a IF THE food consumed by each man, woman and child were reduced by one-third, the pinch of hunger would soon be felt ' and the cry of famine would undoubtedly be raised. Yet substitute the word "wood" for "food" and you have ex--rt.lv what has hamiened in the use of lumber; for the per cap- fmm R00 board feet in 100(i to .'IKi!1 board feet in 1290, says the forest service, United States De partment of agriculture. This decreasing use of a fundamental commodity, .according to forest experts, is not a result of decreasing needs but a result of forest exhaustion. It is not being accomplished without eco-j Tiomic hardshin or without curtailment of industrial expansion. It is not a temporary condition that will automatically adjust itself, for even at this reduced rate ot consumption we are sun rutting our forests more than four times as fast as they grow. The situation proclaims, according to the forest service, that if we are to remain a nation o ftimber users, we must become a na tion of timber growers. In 1906, when American lumber production reached its high est, point, the average per capita consumption of lumber in the United States was approximately 500 board feet. Since that time the per capita consumption has rapitfly and consistently decreased until in 1920 the average citizen used approximately ."16 board feet. This is a reduction oi 37 per cent in 13 years, or nearly 3 per cent a year. Should this decrease continue at its present rate, by 1940 the downward sweep of consumption would approach zero. This, of course, will not happen. The average consumption will ultimately reach a fairly stable level, whicfy will depend mainly upon the extent to which our devas tated, forests are made again productive. The consumption of lumber is not evenly distributed over the various regions of the United States. Previous studies have in dicated that the states of the Pacific Northwest, now the last great; stronghold of big lumbering operations, had a much high er per capita consumption than thosq of other regions, but the present figures are the first which give information for all states upon the same basis. Naturally the greatest per capita con sumption occurs where wood is plentiful and the population is relatively small. In Washington and Oregon the consumption appears to be between 900 and 1000 board feet annually per person. Next come California, Montana, Idaho and Wyoming, where the rate of consumption is from 500 to 800 feet per person an nually. In these states timber is relatively plentiful as compar ed with the density of the population, and a very considerable expansion has been taking place in the development of farms ami other natural resources. . The group next lower in per capita consumption includes the Lake States, and sweeps southwesterly across the prairie states through Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona.

Practically all the remaining states fall into a class in which the annual consumption is 200 to 3T)0 feet per year. This group extends in a broad belt from lexas along the southern and east ern Atlantic coast to Cape Cod, Mass. It also includes North Dakota, Iowa, Utah, and Nevada. The lowest consumption of all is in Rhode Island, the District of Columbia, South Carolina, and Georgia, in which the aver age consumption is rated between lOOand 200 feet per year. in the District ot Columbia there is an extreme situation in XT' l v i i.i i-,,i uuii.-iity ot ijupuiuuuii. rso lumoer is produced, mere is utile farming or manufacturing, and the entire population consists of urban dwellers in the city of Washington who live mainly in houses of brick and stone and require relatively little lumber. All the lumber used in the District of Columbia is imported from other states, just as it is in some of the non-timbered prairie states. In general, the older and more densely settled states show the lowest average consumption. The states characterized by heavy agricultural operations come next, and the greatest use per individual is indicated in those states where there is still considerable timber and where the extension of home building is proceeding at a rapid rate, using the abundant material pro vided by the forests. The states are going throusrh an evolu tionary process, building first of lumber and later of more cost ly materials as the forests recede before fire and axe.
