Figure 17.  Logging patterns in 1953 show the natural forest landscape begin to disappear. Between 1942 and 1953, 8,912 acres (11%) of the Gray’s River forest was clear-cut.  In 1953, the second growth forest made up 40% of the total forest acreage and 33% of the Gray’s River forest was less than 30 years old (Mark Scott 1997).
