Excerpt from Third Annual Report of the Ohio State Forestry Bureau: To the Governor of the State of Ohio, for the Year 1887

To His Excellency, J. B. Foraker, Governor of Ohio -

Sir: In accordance with section 8 of an act to establish a State Foresty Bureau, which is as follows: "This bureau shall annually make a report to the Governor, which shall contain the results of the investigation, together with such other information as the Board may deem necessary for the promotion of forestry in this State," etc., we present for your favorable consideration a memorandum of our contemplated work necessary to be done, with the assistance of your Excellency, in calling the attention of the Legislature to such thoughts and work as will eventually show the work done under the most trying circumstances.

As you well know that the retaining, preserving, and cultivation of forests is yet in their infancy, and looked upon as an unnecessary undertaking, we would call your attention -

First: To the forest of woods adjacent to the sources of streams such as the Muskingum, Licking, Miami, Scioto and others, where the supply of water for the canals is obtained.

Second: By an injudicious management forests are disappearing rapidly, to the great injury of our agricultural and industrial interests, as has been shown in our two volumes of previous years.

The intelligent farmer and landowners are beginning to take an interest, and are seeking knowledge in matters pertaining to forestry, and the Legislature has wisely suggested that a part of the Ohio State University grounds, with the consent of the Trustees, may be used as a part of an experimental station to the benefit of the students and others interested in forestry. But unfortunately the whole grounds were turned over to the regents for other purposes; therefore, we are compelled to seek other places for an experimental station, and would suggest that the Legislature may turn over to this Bureau some of the Virginia Military lands which are not yet sold.

We also submit to you our Secretary's and other report.
