PAGE THREE the various classes of OWnership of forest lands, is one little known classi- has been exceeding- to the economy of of our counties. These called Forest Board Lands, lands which were formerly -~linquent, thus returned to )unties for non-payment of and then transferred to the for management by the in trust for the counties. lands were considered to )rthless at the time they turned over to the state, -~Y have returned in the )f products taken off, $3,- as of December 31, 1952. this money has come 1940. management of these is under the direction of Forest Board, made up Governor as Chairman, of the Department of and Development, Land Commissioner, of the College of For- at the University of Wash- and the State Supervisor try. The field manage- ~harged as a responsibil- e Division of Forestry in artment of Conservation velopment. Before any Lade, the field men of the of Forestry determine or not the sale should be details that should be written into the contract to pro- tect the best interesLs of the land Ior the future, the type of logging to be used, etc. Once the de- cision has been made for sale and the basis .for the carrying on of the actual operation, the sales process itself is handleO by the office of the State Land Com- missioner in the same manner as is the case with granted lands. When sales are made, the coun- ties receive 80% of the gross re- ceipts with a total of 20% going to the Forest Development Fund for administration, retrrement of bonds, and the payment of inter- est on the bonds. This is the highest percentage return to counties in the United States for sales of forest products off forest lanai. Listed below are the counties in which Forest Board Lands are held, giving the amounts re- turned to the counties since 1937 to December 31, 1952. The return to some counties has been phe- nomenal, though in other cases due to the lands being in much poorer shape, the return has been either normal or in some cases below normal. Under careful management, however, on an ex- tensive pattern,- many of the lands are just now beginning to produce the possibilities for ex- tensive cutting. The counties that have been low in the past will undoubtedly show a sharp up- ward swing in their returns dur- ing the next few years. Lands Deeded by Amt.
