Higgins Lake Nursery Summary
Shows That Seedling Output
Triples During 1929.
With plans for the planting of
between 18,000 and 20,000 acres
during the coming season, the
Forestry Division of the Depart-
ment of Conservation will begin its
spring work in the state forests asi
soon as the frost is thoroughly out'
of the ground. April 15 has been
set as the approximate date for the
If the Division succeeds in plant-
ing more than 18,000 acres in trees
this year, it will establish a record
for Michigan. In 1929, during the
spring and fall seedlings the For-
estry Division planted 17,204 acres,
which represented a record up to
that time. This increased the acre-
age now planted by the state ap-
proximately twenty-five per cent.
With the beginning of this year the
Forestry Division has a record of
71,457 acres set out.
The plantings this year will bringL
the total to near 90,000 acres. Withs
almost half a million acres includ-
ed in the twelve state forests, it
will mean that approximatelya
twenty per cent will be growing
new forests, planted by the state.
The last annual inventory of thep
young stock at hand from the 'igu -
gins Lake Nursery showed 30,00 a
seedlings of all classes. The out-
put for last year was approximate-
ly 10,000,000. The bulk of this was
set on the state forests, althou
about 1,250,000 trees were distribut-
ed to the public for private plant-
ing.'' It is estimated that some 17,-
000,000 young trees are availablet
for this year's plantings.
During the fall of 1929 the For-
estry Division collected and purch-
asedtwelve tons of pine cones and
with755 pounds of seeds sown dur-
ing the year, sufficient stock was
obtained to maintain the present
rate of output.
The planting of trees is but one
of the functions of the Forestry Di-
vision, it is indicated in a report of
last year's activities, submitted by
Marcus Schaaf, State Forester, to
Director George R. Hogarth of the
Department of Conservation.
The safeguarding of state's for-
sts from fires is one of the major
duties of the Division. Through
the Division's cautions, last year
only 2,256 acres were burned over
despite an exceptionally dry fall.
This area representedbut one-half
of one per cent of the state acreage
and under three tenths of one per
cent of the gross area under pro-
tection. Ninety-one per cent of
the territory burned was'covered
by two fires which the Division be-:
lieves were of incediary origin. Last
year eighteen miles of telephone
lines connecting towers and head-
quarters were built; two more tow -
ers were erected and much fire
fighting equipment was added.
Employees of the Forestry Di-
vision in 1929, the report shows,
built 225 miles of fire line. There
are now 1,401 miles of such lines
protecting the state forests. J
