Importance Of Flagstaff To Lumber Industry Cited FLAGSTAFF, Feb. 10 (AP) The vast importance of the lumbering industry to Flagstaff is evidenced by the fact that more than half of the nearly 200,000,000 feet of timber harvested in Arizona during 1948 was cut in Coconino county, of which Flagstaff is the seat. On one forest alone, Coconino, the cut totaled S5,910,000 feet, according to figures compiled in the regional forest office at Albuquerque, "N. M. Revenue for the timber cut in Arizona was $754,256, or an average of $3.90 per thousand feet. Coconino county's forests brought in $337,293, or an average of $4.45 per thousand, in fees paid to the forest service. Of this amount 42 per cent will come back to the county through various funds. In lieu of taxes the forest service returns to the several counties a flat 25 per cent, of receipts, which goes into the general county 'receipts; six per cent is returned to the state, but is earmarked for spending in the school districts of the counties in which the timber is cut, and an additional 10 per cent is returned to the state for spending on roads in the several counties in which the timber was harvested. Thus Coconino will receive nearly $150,000 in forest receipts for the 1948 cut on forests within the county. This is the greatest amount received by any county in the Southwest and is near the top two or three counties in the nation. The Coconino rorest cut broke all records. Ordinarily the forest will produce between 60,000,000 and 70,000,000 feet a year, but during the war years and because of the great markets for all building materials, producers have been allowed to exceed that figure. This was possible because the total allowance cut was not harvested each year during the depression years before the war. Added to the 85,910,000 feet to determine Coconino county's total production is that of the Kaibab National Forest, 17,034,000, and about 10 per cent of the cut of Sitgreaves National Forest, or 3,-978,000 feet, for a county total of 106,922,000 feet. Production of lumber on all forests in Arizona last year amounted to 193,498,000 feet. The entire region, which includes Arizona and New Mexico, produced 232,663,000.
