About Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests

The Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests was formed in Concord, N.H. in February 1901 "...to preserve the forests of New Hampshire, to protect its scenery, to encourage the building of good roads, and to cooperate in other measures of public improvement in the State." Governor Frank West Rollins was elected its first President and Philip W. Ayres was engaged as forester, a position he continued to hold for the next 34 years.

In 1911, the Weeks Bill, providing for Federal acquisition of forest lands on the headwaters of navigable streams, was passed and signed by the President of the United States. A National Forest Reservation Commission was set up which, upon assurance by the U.S. Geological Survey that control of such lands would aid or protect the navigation of the streams upon whose watersheds they lay, was authorized to approve purchase of those lands. The actual acquisition fell under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Forest Service. In addition, money was appropriated to help states in fire protection - providing there were matching state funds.

Thus the machinery was set up for the formation of the White Mountains National Forests as well as for all the other National Forests established through purchase.
