Los Angeles County Forestry Activities
With a budget of $657,000 for the work of its forestry and fire warden department and a personnel of 613, including part-time employees, Los Angeles County is conducting more reforestation and forest protection work than any but a few states. The effort is unique in that it concerns chaparral forests more than tree forests and in that water conservation and flood control are the impelling motives. Of particular interest also is the decision of the County Forester to engage in experimental work to determine the methods of reforestation best suited to the unusually adverse site factors. Mr. Cecil's brief outline of the county's forestry and protection activities is particularly timely in view of the field trips planned for visitors to the annual meeting of the Society of American Foresters in December.
