Monongahela National Forest
Good logging weather encourages purchase of timber and pulpwood from the Monongahela National Forest. Six advertised sales comprising 4,773,000 board feet of saw logs and 3,749 cords of pulpwood were purchased by six concerns during the last two months. The 1,903 acres to be cut are located on four of the six Ranger Districts. The purchasers, all in West Virginia, included Fred Giggenbach, White Sulphur Springs; Okey Mullens, Huntersville; Leslie Brothers, Cowen, Hayes Scott, Mill Creek; Green Bank Mills, Bartow; and Robert Nesselrodt, Petersburg.
Cutting within the 2,723 acres of sale area will vary with silvicultural needs of the timber stands, as modified for multiple use man- agement. Even-aged management as the foresters know it, was applied in marking the timber to be sold. Overmature stands totaling 626 acres will be cut in patches to regenerate new stands of timber for the future. Some 1,277 acres of the younger second growth stands will be thinned and improved. The remaining 820 acres within the 2,723 acres of safe area are reserved from cutting for multiple use management reasons or are still too small for economical treatment through commercial.
The above sales represent approximately 12 percent of the timber volume to be sold during the current fiscal year on the 806,000 acre Monongahela National Forest.
“Safety” was the theme used for the program of the regular monthly meeting of the Boyer Busy Bees 4-H Club. The meeting was held April 29 at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Taylor.
Jeanie Sheets led the devotions which consisted of the song, “West Virginia Boys and Girls,” followed by the 4-H pledge and Pledge of Allegiance. The scripture reading was given by Vicky Taylor, a poem, “Hands” by Betty Brewster. The Club repeated the Lord’s Prayer and sang “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.”
We welcomed a new member, Bobby Simmons, to our club.
We were glad to have Mrs. Jane Hamed present at our meeting and she gave a very interesting talk on Health and Safety…
