Nathan Walker ie in charge of
Chambers Mountain tower, Clyde,
which is connected by phone with Mr.
Plott's residence, in order that he
may be notified at once in case of
fire. Ninety per cent of the county
can be seen from this tower. The
only sections not visable are the Big
East Fork behind Cold Mountain, and
Crabtree Bald on Fines Creek. MT.
Plott says that even with his famili
arity with every fishing stream and
hunting ground in the county, he
sometimes ha., trniihlo in locating and
finding; the fires.
In 1934 when the county withdrew
its support, and likewise the state,
there were fires which burned 10,333
acres, with an estimated value of
$30,009. While in 1035 there were 40
fires the total damage was $3,000.00.
There were in the entire western dis
trict in 1035 422 fires with a damage
of $42,500. The average damage in
the state per acre in 1033 was $3.40;
in 1034, $2.40, and in 1035, $2.10. The
estimate, however, for the district in
1935 was $3.05, since there is more
forest acreage in this section than
While these are definite figures as
to certain values, there are many in
direct losses, due to erosion and de
struction to wild life, which curtail
recreational value of property. It
was interesting to learn of the causes
of fires which are as follows: Brush
burning, 17 per cent; hunters, camp
ers, 11 per cent; railroads, 5 per cent;
lumbering, 1 per cent; incendiary 46
per cent, pmokers, 13 per cent; miscel
laneous, 5 per cent, and unknown, 2
While there were mote fires in 1035
than 1031, the average fire was small
er, the per cent of area burned less,
and the actual cost of suppressing the
fire less, which goes to show the in
creased .efficiency of the warden, or
ganization. Setting a conservative figure of 3
cents per acre per year as being nec
essary for adequate protection, thin
district should have, with its 1,190,000
forest acres $3(5.000' annually for fire
protection. Instead last year the
allotment was $9,000. It is further
estimated that in these western
counties forest lands pay between 5
and 2; cents per year m taxes. 1 he
only portion of this which reverts to
direct benefit vf the forest land is
that portion which may be appro
priated for forest protection. It can
be readily seen that forest lands more
than pay the amount necessary to pro
tect them and bear their share of
other governmental expenses.
During 1035 Mr. Plott sold fishing
licenses to the amount of $1,382, and
hunting licenses amounted to $1,914,
totaling $3,206 collected, f These fig-
ures alone show the keen interest in
these sports, and should be conclu
sive argument of the importance of
preserving and protecting both. The
fish hatchery at Balsam has had a
large share of educating the public in
general to a greater appreciation of
the natural resources of this section,
with an idea of conservation. Thous
ands of fish from this hatchery have
been planted in Haywood streams.
The recent organization of a Wild
Life Club is further evidence of the
growing interest in the preservation
of nature. Mr. Plott wishes that he
had some place in which he could col
lect specimens of wild life and na
tive woods, that might be the nucleus
of a county museum, not only for the
benefit of the tourists, but as an edu
cational project for the children.
After talking with our forest war
den and game and fish protector
one is impressed with the fact that
his selection "wag a wise one for the
county. He does not think in terms
of mere hunting or fishing licenses, or
mere putting out the fires, but he has
a broad and far reaching vision of
conservation that does not confine
itself to the present generation, but
for generations to come.
