Report of the Fourth Annual Meeting of the Canadian Forestry Association : Held at Ottawa, March 5 and 6, 1903 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Report of the Fourth Annual Meeting of the Canadian Forestry Association: Held at Ottawa, March 5 and 6, 1903 The cut of southern yellow pine timber (including about million feet sawn in the west) reached a total of million feet, as compared with million feet of white pine, millions hemlock millions in the north-eastern states, and millions in the west), and million feet of spruce. The southern pines and Pacific fir almost exactly equalling the cut of white pine, hemlock and spruce, the former being millions and the latter million feet so that it is but reasonable to assume that the cut of southern pine to-day largely exceeds the whole cut of white pine, hemlock and spruce, and by the time another census year comes around the lordly white pine, that heretofore dominated all other timber trees combined in its production of lumber, will have disappeared from the census enumeration as an important factor in lumber production. This is an object lesson that should be seriously considered by us, for I greatly fear a critical examination of our Canadian forest lands would Show that we too have been running a close race with our neighbours in the rate of forest, and especially white pine, destruction.
