Abstract

The first California Board of Forestry, created in 1885, was charged "to do any and all things within their power to encourage the preservation and planting of forests, and the consequent maintenance of the water resources of the State."' Its initial two-year operating budget was $5,000, but the allocation was increased to $29,500 for the following two-year period, and the members of the board and their assistants were made peace officers." The only laws available for enforcing those against fire-setters and timber trespassers (pilferers)-were poorly enforced.
