They Are Sometimes a Gain to These
Who Own the Timber.
People who have read accounts of
great forest fires may be surprised tu
learu that, iu place of loss, such Ores
are sometimes a galu to tbe owner
The lo.ss in lumber if cut within a few
years is small, and the removal of un
derbrush reduces the cost of lumber
Tbat a forest fire could in any way
be a benefit and not an injury seems
so novel that some proof is necessary.
Tbe statement bus been made that
more timber is destroyed by fire every
year than is conrerted Into lumber.
As a matter of fact, the report of the
forest service declares the actual fire
loss in national reserves for the last
three years bas amounted to only one
tent of 1 per cent. From some tifty
lumber companies the highest admit
ted loss from Ore la 2 per ceut in twen
ty years. Another company estimates
Its Ore loss for firty two years at 1 per
cent, and another, during sixty, has
bad an annual loss of one-sixteenth of
1 percent. Twenty eight companies re
port their loss since organization as
"hardly worth mentioning."
The point of these reports, so sur
prising to those unacquainted with the
lumber business is tbat the tires, while
they kill the trees, do not consume tbe
trunk. The less severe Ores do not
necessarily kill the trees. Worse fires
do this by burning the underbrush
around the trees and perhaps the tops
of the trees. But the trunk of the tree,
the log from which the boards are to
be cnt. is seldom touched. The killed
timber makes as good lumber as the
other, tbe only difference being tbat it
is necessary to cut it within a limited
