Scope and content
The series consists of photographic negatives, prints, and transparencies created by the Ministry of Forests and its predecessors including the Forest Service and Forest Branch. Series documents forest service personnel and activities relating to forest planning, protection and inventory; engineering; rangelands management and use; recreation resource management and use; research; and timber harvesting. Subjects often relate to specific forest districts, and include trees and other botanical specimens (specific species and their characteristics), stands and forests, aircraft and watercraft, buildings and facilities (such as mills, nurseries and laboratories), employees, equipment and tools, experimental projects, forest fires and fire control, geographic features (such as mountains and rivers), logging practices, pests and diseases, railways and roads, tree planting, wildlife, and vehicles. Records' arrangement based on original Forest Service numbers. These numbers reflect some arrangement by subject matter. The records include Forest Service numbers: FS00001 - FS25983.
The photographs are arranged numerically by FS number. The photo prints are mounted on cards which contain the title, the Oxford Forest classification number, the Forest Service photo number, the photographer's name and the date the photo was taken. The negatives are arranged numerically. The negatives have been removed from the original glassine negative envelopes which often have notes written on them.
The series also consists of various lists and indexes of Forest Service photographs.
