Description

Excerpt from Report of the Ontario Royal Commission on Forestry, 1947 In I763 Governor James Murray arranged for the survey of Townships and the setting aside therein of adequate reserves of timber for fortifications and barracks for the Army and Navy and for naval timber, mentioning specifically that the area between Lake Champlain and the St. Lawrence River be set aside as a reserve for masting for the Royal Navy and other useful and necessary timber for naval constructions. In I775 Sir Guy Carleton was instructed, It is our will and pleasure, however, that no grant be made of any lands on which there is any considerable growth of white pines fit for masting for our Royal Navy, and which lie convenient for water carriage, but that you do cause all such lands to be set apart for our use, and proper regulations made, and penalties inflicted to prevent trespass on such tracts, and the cutting down and destroying of the trees growing thereon. It is therefore apparent that the system of setting aside Crown lands in the Provinces of Ontario and Quebec had its genesis in the needs of naval construction.
