;-A AT/TOONA MIRROR—FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1929 ^DISPOSAL IS BIG TASK IN FORESTS Lack- of Cleaning Up Slash- higs In Lumbering Jobs, Costly According to Forester In Penn. District. (By United Press.) KARRISBURG, Nov. 8. — More money must be spent on account of milure to dispose of slashings In lum- oering than such disposal would cost, according to a statement Issued by District Forester T. C. Harbeaon, of the Penn Forest district. Lack of slash disposal requires added and unnecessary expendituie on account of one or more of the follow" ing: First—Greater difficulty In logging; second—Greater damage by forest fires; third—Increased cost of forest protection; F o u r t h—Decreased wood production, both In quantity and quality. It Is not entirely possible to rely upon the solutions of this problem which have been worked out by foresters who have studied it In other states. Attention must be given to the particular conditions in Pennsylvania forests. The problem was complicated In earlier days by the fact that only the very best of virginal timber was taken out. Now only about 25,000 acres of this timber is left, and In a few years practically none will be cut. We now •jfriport four-fifths of our lumber. Observations of District Forester Harbeson, who has studied the problem extensively, point to the following conclusions: First—About 50,000 acres of slash are annually created in this state. Second—About 85 per cent of cut-over areas shows that nearly all material is used to three inches or even less in diameter. Third—Cut- over areas can be reforested in spite of slashings. Fourth—The danger from slash decreases with time, the danger from lire in hardwood being greatly reduced in the last live years. Fifth—Slash disintegrates most rapidly if piled In small heaps. Sixth—Various kinds of fungi cause the rotting of slash. Seventh—These fungi are not injurious to living"- trees. Eighth—Forest slash offers no exceptional opportunity for the breeding of injurious insects. Ninth—Regeneration on areas on which all slash has been burned appears no better than where slash has not been disposed of in that way. Tenth—Fires occur no more frequently in slash, per unit of area, than in leaves in slash-free forests. Eleventh—The slash now being •created in this stato would require approximately $500,000 annually to be burned. Twelfth—The true solution of tha problem seems to be to find some method of utilizing small sized timber products In a profitable way. At present the problem is an individual ono for each district forester. Invading Pirate's Haunts This photograph It A study In ages. Here, !n 1071, Morgan, the hold bad buccaneer, sacked and burled the old city of Panama, razing to the ground many fine old dwellings and churches. Now an excellent modern motor highway extends along the trail taken by Morgan and his band. American sightseers follow the path where the pirate's 175 pack mules, loaded with gold, silver and other loot, floundered through tropical swamps and Jungle.
