Not illustrated. 1913 edition. Excerpt: ...wood-lots. Forest fires in the United States have caused an average annual loss of 70 human lives and the destruction of 25,000 000 dollars worth of timber. The American Forestry Association has members in every state in the union, in every province in Canada, and in every civilized and semicivilized country in the world. On the Pocatello forest, Idaho, 230,000 trees were planted during the past year, and almost half a million in the past three years, fully three-fourths of which are alive and doing well. A large number of national forests already more than pay operating expenses. The revenue from the Alaskan forests now exceeds the cost of administration. The same is true generally in the southwest. There are more than 500 recognized tree species in the United States, of which about 100 are commercially important for timber. Of the 500 recognized species, 300 are represented in the government's newly acquired Appalachian forests. More than 700,000 acres have been acquired for national forest purposes in the southern Appalachians and White Mountains, of which considerably more than half was secured during 1913. These lands are being protected against fire and the work of the government has greatly strengthened local sentiment against forest fires. Some 250 miles of trail, to help in fire control, were completed during the year. "ELECTRO" Arsenate of Lead Powder 33% arsenic oxide is not a dried-out Paste that has been ground, but a noncrystalline form made by direct process--used either wet or dry. One pound does the work of two and one-half or three pounds of ordinary Arsenate of Lead Paste. "ELECTRO" Bordo Lead is just the thing for potato growers.
