Forest Service photographs

  • GR-3426
  • Series
  • 1911-1979

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.

The photographs are arranged numerically by FS file numbers FS00001 - FS25983. 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. Not every negative was printed. The photographer might take between one and six photographs within a file and either some or none of the negatives were printed and mounted on cards.
The negatives are arranged numerically by FS file number. The negatives from number FS10509 onwards have been removed from the original glassine negative sleeves. These sleeves often have notes written on them and have been preserved as part of the series.
