Valuing the Adirondack Forest

February 19th, 2015 · No Comments · Miscellania

“This region has, within a few years, come into great prominence and is now attracting much attention by reason of its economic and sanitary importance. Its mineral resources were at one time thought to be great, but these sink into insignificance when compared to the value now placed upon its forests. The state has awakened to an appreciation of the value of these forests and has taken measures looking toward their preservation and utilization. It would make them not only a permanent possession, but contributors to health, wealth and knowledge.” ~ C.H Peck, NYS Botanist 1899
