Book Description:
LAWS RELATING TO FORESTRY AND THE SUPPRESSION OF THE GYPSY AND BROWN TAIL MOTHS INTRODUCTION. The last general edition of the forest laws of this Common wealth was issued in 1909. Our supply of the little blue booklet in which these laws were contained has long since been exhausted. Since that time both the fire laws and gypsy moth laws have been amended, and special editions of these laws have been published, but our supply of these, too, has been used up. We do not include in this booklet the forest taxation law, because this act is bound in a separate pamphlet , and its inclusion in this booklet is unnecessary. This publication does not contain the shade tree hws of the Commonwealth, although it might fittingly do so, because the enforcement of these laws does not come within the jurisdiction of the State Forester. We are always glad, however, to advise with any one in regard to these laws and other shade tree problems. The chapter on the work of the Massachusetts forestry department may help to make clear the meaning of the laws on which our work is based. F. W. RANE, State Forester. JULY 1, 1018. CONTENTS.

The work of the State Forester is divided into four branches, under separate administrative heads, as follows gypsy moth, forest fires, forestry, and forest utilization. We do not mean to indicate that there is a distinct line of cleavage between these four branches and that each works independently of the other. The object of the State Forester, as stated by law, is the perpetuation, extension, protection, and proper management of the forest lands of the Commonwealth, both public and private Acts of 1904, chapter 409, section 2. All of these branches work together to produce this result, and their work must interlock, as their interests are united. Gypsy Moth Suppression. The law provides that each individual town shall care for the suppression of the gypsy and brown tail moths within its borders through a local superintendent appointed by the selectmen or mayors and approved by the State Forester. In carrying out measures for such suppression, the local superintendent acts under the direction of the State Forester, his deputized assistant, and district superintendents. We shall not go into detail in regard to the financing of this work as provided by law as the details are somewhat corn plicatcd. Suffice it to say that each town has a liability which is one twenty fifth of one per cent. of its valuation. This sum, which amounts to only a few hundreds in small towns nd runs up to five thousand dollnrs in cities, thc community must spend from its own funds, provided the conditions call for it...
