GRAVE FOREST SITUATION FOLLOWS SEPTEMBER
HURRICANE



Woodland problems of timber salvage and fire control
created in many towns by the September hurricane are of the
greatest importance. GOOD CITIZENSHIP CALLS FOR PER-
SONAL AND WIDESPREAD ACTION !

The salvage of every thousand feet of logs which can be
sold means money for landowners, wages for workers, employ-
ment for trucks, teams and machinery, as well as reduced forest
fire hazard for all. If owners of windthrown timber have not
yet acted, they should communicate with those who can help.
TOWN CHAIRMEN are fully informed; STATE ADVISORY
AGENTS can help to start logging by suggesting names of op-
erators and giving other useful advice ; FEDERAL AGENCIES
are increasing the number of log storage places as rapidly as
possible. INDIVIDUALS MUST NOW COOPERATE !

Forest fire danger for several years will be greater than
usual. So much work must be done by public agencies to reduce
hazard along roadsides, near improved and other exposed areas
that many places will remain hazardous for some time to come.
INDIVIDUAL LANDOWNERS MUST TAKE A PERSONAL
INTEREST ! Aid in clean-up work through the Agricultural
Conservation Program is available to any woodland owner at
$4.00 per acre on areas up to 15 acres. The County Agent should
be consulted.

Support your local Forest Fire Wardens and Deputies.

They are planning, with State and Federal agencies, an inten-
sive campaign to control fires. Help them by strict observance
of the fire laws. Kindle no open fires without a permit from the
Warden except when the ground is covered with snow. Cooper-
ate by reporting fires you may see and in other ways. Fire fight-
ing tool supplies are inadequate and should be reasonably in-
creased by many towns. YOU CAN HELP, AND IT WILL
PAY, TO PREVENT FOREST FIRES !
