OUR FOREST RESERVATIONS.
In the list showing the area of
state forestry reservations, Potter
and Clinton counties are by far the
largest. The area of state forestry
lands at tho beginning of tho pres
ent year was nearly 917,000 acres.
Tho area has been slightly Increased
since then, as purchases of addition
al land wore authorized at practical
ly each one of tho monthly meetings
of tho state forestry reservation com
mission. Tho forestry reservations aro dis
tributed through 20 counties, by far
the greater portion of the land being
in tho Susquehanna valley. Not all
of the forestry reservations aro forest
land, strictly speaking, for some of
the ground has been burned over so
frequently that It Is bare of timber.
All of tho ground is naturally forest
land, howover, and well adapted to
such purposes, and where baro acres
exist they aro being reforested as
speedily as possible, through tho aid
of tho several state nurseries.
The following table shows the area
of reservations, by counties, in acres:
