However, commercial forest area has decreased by about 220,000 acres since 1953 and may decrease a million acres more by the year 2000, mostly because of urban and industrial expansion and recreational development. This information is from a new Forest Survey report, "Timber Resources of the Puget Sound Area, Washington," by Charles L. Bolsinger, forester with the Pacific Northwest Forest and Range Experiment Station, Portland, Oregon. This U. S. Forest Service publication is the result of a new inventory of timber resources in Island, King, Kitsap, Pierce, San Juan, Skagit, Snohomish, and Whatcom Counties, Washington. The report includes information on forest land area, timber volume, growth, and mortality. Net annual growth of the New Rangers Are Named Two new District Rangers have been named on the Olympic National Forest for the Hoodsport and Soleduck Ranger Districts, according to Wynne M. Maule, Forest Supervisor. John B. Perkins has assumed the Ranger position at Hoodsport. He replaces Jack Grubb who transferred to the Supervisors Office in Olympia. Perkins is a 1957 graduate of Iowa State College. He worked for the Pacific Northwest Forest and Range Experiment Station, transferring to the Okanogan National Forest in 1959, to the Siskiyou National Forest in 1964, and to the Division of Lands in Region 5 headquarters in San Francisco in 1967. He returned to Oregon as Timber Management Assistant on the Winema National Forest in 1969. Perkins and his wife Anna have four children and are living in Hoodsport. James Crawford will assume District Ranger duties on the Soleduck Ranger District in Forks July 11. Crawford succeeds D. Lee Cromley who has transferred to Mr. Baker National Forest in Bellingham as Timber Staff Officer. Crawford graduated from University of Idaho in 1963 with a degree in forest management. He started his career in 1963 on the Rogue River National Forest. He worked on the Bear Springs District, Mr. Hood National Forest prior to his promotion at Soleduck. He and his wife Donna have a two-year old daughter. They will make their home in Forks. all at 1st & Railroad II I Given forests is somewhat less than current annual timber harvest. Over the years, timber harvest operations have been shifting from private to public lands, from Douglas-fir to hemlock and Pacific silver fir, and from the flat low country and foothills to the steep slopes of the higher mountains. im er Douglas-fir is the most extensive forest type but is estimated to cover only half as much area now as it covered prior to settlement of the Puget Sound country. About 60 per cent of the Douglas-fir type is in private ownership. Western hemlock is the second most extensive forest type and the major type on ;ources In National Forest lands, Less than 2 per cent of the forest land is without trees, a contrast with conditions in 1933 when about 20 per cent was nonstocked. Extensive areas that once supported conifers-- mostly Douglas-fir - are now stocked with low quality hardwoods. Though Douglas-fir is the most extensive forest type, there is slightly more hemlock sawtimber volume. Much of the remaining large old-growth forest is hemlock; a large portion of the Douglas-fir type is young growth with less volume per acre than found in the old-growth hemlock stands. Pacific silver fir is the third most important species in terms of sawtimber volume; it occurs in the higher elevations in association with hemlock.
