Title:
Jepson Field Book volume 21 page 96
Description:
Butte Creek and one mile easterly, all the Jeffrey Pine trees that could be seen as we moved through the forest were blazed on 3 or 4 sides with long blazes 3 or 4 ft. long and 1 ft. broad.  Only Jeffrey Pines were so blazed.  The hotel-keeper at Butte Creek (where we stopped for midday meal at the most wretched table you can imagine) told me that the trees had been blazed for "abietine" purposes, that a mill for manufacturing the flow into abietine had been maintained there for some time.  It was my notion that the abietine people had used "fir" :::::::::  June 3, 1910  of some species but in this locality they preyed only on Jeffrey Pine.  The hotel-keeper remarked that the pine "did not grow anywhere else."  And so indeed, it does not grow below here (the Yellow Pine below was not blazed), nor above here does it grow except for a mile or two, then the Rid Fir in a pure stand begins. The belts are in their extreme expression well marked here.  The Red Fir is well scattered below here to be sure but above here it begins sharply and is wholly pure.  There is fine Sugar Pine in the Yellow Pine belt, both west and east of summit of this range.
