Forest Fire Control in North Carolina
The Division of Forestry in the Department of Conservation and Development is the agency designated by law to supervise forest fire control work in North Carolina. Two methods are employed: cooperation with counties, and cooperation with timberland owners in either a cooperating or a noncooperating county. Fifteen million acres, or about 75 per cent of the forested area of the state, are now afforded protection. The article describes how the control work is organized under this system of cooperation.
