Excerpt from Itasca State Park: An Illustrated History

From the report of the Commissioner of Itasca State Park, made on the first day of last December, it appears that the state has acquired the ownership and control of acres Within the limits of the park, and that there are still within these limits acres, owned by private parties and scattered in tracts of various sizes among the state lands, that ought to be acquired by the state. These lands are covered with a valuable forest of pine, spruce, fir, cedar, ash and oak, and the owners are likely at an early day to cut and market this timber. When these lands have been stripped of their timber they are the easy prey of forest fires. And a fire breaking out upon them wiil inevitably spread to the other lands-of the park, and thus the Whole area will become a burnt, black and desert waste, and will cease to aflbrd any safeguard or protection to the source of our mighty river.
