Is the timber thrifty or decaying? The fir is mostly old growth yellow fir that is fairly thrifty but not improving. The cedar is old growth and not improving. The hemlock is young growth and thrifty.

Is there any logging or shingle bolt cutting now being carried on near this land? No.

Has the land adjacent been logged off or burnt over? No.

What, if any, is the danger from fire? No great danger from fire, other than from campers who come here to fish and hunt.

Are there any improvements on this land, and is there an occupant? No.

Is there any visible sign of coal or other mineral deposits on this land? Saw no sign of coal or other minerals on this land.

Has this land any special value on account of its topography as a route for railway, a logging road, or for dam sites or water power? Along the river is a good route for a logging railroad.

Fir: The fir is mostly all old growth yellow fir, that is fairly thrifty yet although it shows some conk and dry rot and is not improving. It is fair size, tall and fairly clean and of good quality, and will cut about 60% No. 1, 20% Merchantable and the remainder No 2. Or 81% No 1 and Merchantable and 19% No 2. Will cut from 100 feet 10 180 feet linear, to the tree in logs.

Spruce:

Cedar: Mostly all old growth cedar that is fairly good but not awfully large. Has many hollow butts and dead streaks on the side, but the amount that there is of good timber will be of first class quality.

Hemlock: The hemlock stands fairly thick nearly all over the section especially on east 1/2. It is small and rough but generally sound. All No 2.

The surface is covered with a dense growth of under brush, such as Vinemaple, young hemlock and fir, huckleberrie, Salmonberrie and devils club. There is also a great deal of old down stuff, a great amount of which has been down so long that it is worthless. The aneroid readings shown on plat are from taken from aneroid, correted each day from USFS Bench Mark, but bad weather probably caused it to vary considerable.

Logging Conditions
A high rock ridge runs North and South through the center of this section, and each slope will have to be logged separate from the other. The East slope is less abrupt than the west slope, although either slope can be worked with donkey engines. A logging railroad can be constructed along the river on the east of the section, and the ground along the west side of section is level enough for a logging railroad. The timber on either slope can be handled to advantage, down to railroads built in this way. The heft of the fir and cedar is on the west 1/2 section. The NW 1/4 being the best timbered. The East side of stion, the timber runs heavy to hemlock, which is very small and rough but a good stand. The river runs near the east boundary line south across the section, leaving a narrow strip on the east side of the river. On this section, this narrow strip has practically nothing but hemlock on it. This with other timber adjoining will make a fair logging proposition. There are springs and small streams, aside from the river that will furnish ample water for logging locomotives, donkey engines and camp purposes.

Is the timber thrifty or decaying? The old growth fir is very old and is not improving and should be converted into lumber.  The cedar is not imporving but is fairly thrifty.  Hemlock young and thrifty.

Is there any logging or shingle bolt cutting now being carried on near this land? No.

Has the land adjacent been logged off or burnt over? No.

What, if any, is the danger from fire? The greatest danger from fire is from campers who came to fish in the lakes.

Are there any improvements on this land, and is there an occupant? No improvements or occupants. But there are several old slashings, done years ago and now grown up- by people that homesteaded the land.

Is there any visible sign of coal or other mineral deposits on this land? No visible sign of coal or other minerals.

Has this land any special value on account of its topography as a route for railway, a logging road, or for dam sites or water power? The lakes on the west side of section could be used for the storage of logs if so desired.

The surface is very badly broken with Fuller Mountain on the South and so many lakes and ponds and the greater part of the North 1/2 very rolling with rock buttes that are very steep.  Of but little value for farming land.

Logging Conditions
The greater part of the fir is old growth yellow fir of good size and quality, and the North of section is fairly well timbered with it.  THe land lays rather bad for convenient logging as it is very rough and rolling, and steep in places.  Fuller Mountain on the south raises up very steep with rock cliffs on the east side and rock slide on the west.  The North side of the section between the lake and the beaver pond is very badly broken with rock hups or buttes that are very steep.  The East row of forties is only gently rolling.  There is an immense lot of old dow fir in some places piled several deep that was blown down, probably at the sam time, many years ago.  htese are badly decayed alothough when cut, ther may be a few logs in them, but cannot estimate them.  The timber west of the beaver ponds can be handled south along the lake, and stream that runs from one lake to the other.  THe timber East of the ponds can be handled south, and with other timber adjoining.  THe timber on Fuller Mountain will be hard to handle as it is so steep and broken and will porblably not pay to handle at present.  But there is no great amount on the mountain.  The surface is covered with a thick growth of underbrush mostly of vinemaple, young hemlock and fir, huckleberrie, elder, and devilsclub and sallal.  I find the section to be shor on the North, about 11 or 12 rods.

Is the timber thrifty or decaying? Part of the timber is very conkey and from examining windfalls find them effected with ground rot as all are broken at the ground

Is there any logging or shingle bolt cutting now being carried on near this land? None.

Has the land adjacent been logged off or burnt over? Not any.

What, if any, is the danger from fire? At present there is not much danger. However there is a lot of down small Hemlock.  Caused by heavy snow last season which is green at present if this timber become dead it would create plenty of material for fires.

Are there any improvements on this land, and is there an occupant? None.

Is there any visible sign of coal or other mineral deposits on this land? None visible.

Has this land any special value on account of its topography as a route for railway, a logging road, or for dam sites or water power? On this section a good route can be found for a railroad from the South to the North.

Logging Conditions
This timber can be logged to the South. A very good route for a railroad can be found in and across this section along the East line of this section around the shore of Echo Lake (Boyle Lake).  The surface is gentle rolling and sloping on the West part, on the East part the surface is steep sloping from dividing ridge as a whole the Timber can be logged to good advantage and will handle partly to the East and partly to the West of this section.

General Note:
This section don't contain the acreage given on the township plat on the East boundary owing to the less variation on the south boundary is about 73 chains on the west boundary the distance is given as 69.34 chains and the plat gives the fraction on the North as 34.75 acres which in not correct.
