Mr. TAYLOR (Nanaimo):

In earnestly supporting all that has been said about this matter I wish to draw attention to another feature of conservation. In British Columbia, and in fact all along the Pacific coast, there is a valuable tree which is indigenous, namely the cascara tree. It thrives in the forests, but the moment those forests are cut down the ruthless deforestation destroys the cascara tree. There is quite a process connected with the collection of the bark, a process which

is understood by those who have practiced it for some time. The tree is easily taken care of, but the people who ruthlessly destroy the resources of our country should be prevented from carrying on their nefarious, destructive work. Has the minister anything to say about what is being done with respect to the care for the cascara tree?

Mr. TAYLOR (Nanaimo):

I believe the cascara tree is making its last stand in British Columbia, because it has been destroyed in California, Oregon, and to a great extent in

Washington. The bark takes about three years to cure before it is ready for the chemical market. The importance of the growth of this tree should be considered by the conservation branch of the department.
