COURIER NEWS MONDAY, JULY 22, J'J-KJ Forests Reseeded By Quick Method .Official in Oregon Finds Airplanes Get The Job Done Quickly By F.LDON BAIIRKTT IJiilftd 'Press Staff Correspondent SALEM, Ore-. CUP)—The Oregon state forestry department is patiently watt lug tlie results of nil experiment that may revolutionize nn essential phnse of one of Ore gon's most Important.Industries. The Industry is lumbering; Ui essential phase Is growing trees, nnd the experiment Is scectlntj l)y airplane. Two large tracts already have been seeded from the nlr. One is n 1,400-ncre area In the great Til- Inmook burn. The other is an 800-acrfc site in Polk County. llotleiit-Control Project The larger area was chosen because of its adaptability t;> an experiment of this kind, forest officials said. In that area there are various intensities of burn caused by recent and very old forest fires; the terrain is relatively rough, and the area lias nil aspects for planting. Because of a high rodent population (mainly white-footed mice), it was necessary to undertake :\ control project alone with the planting program. If this svas nut done, tlio animals would gobble xip the seed almost before they could germinate. Tlie Fish and Wildlife Service was callcel in to nssist in the control project. Poison was spread in a buffer strip one-half-mile wide arou:id the planting area. Tills wus done mainly by linnd. Then mi airplane was used to spread poison In the planting nrca before the seeds were sown. Different Seeds Teitcd Two different seed mixtures were used. Five hundred acres were planted with Douglas fir and Poit Oxford cedar. The reir.ainlnn area was planted with Douglas fir, 3Hkn spruce and Western hemlock. In the Polk County site tlie onlj seed used was Port Oxford ccdnr which is so small, rodents do nol bother it. , Both areas will be checked al regular intervals during the r.ex' few years to determine the cxten' of germination and survival o seedlings. Results of the experiment will not be known definite!) for several years.
