They shall cause all such lands to be located and duly recorded, and shall make and publish reasonable rules and regulations for the prevention of trespass upon paid lands, for the prevention and extinguishing of fires thereon, and for the conservation of forest growth. They shall also, so far as possible, promote the gradual extension of the forest area, encourage the planting of trees, and preserve the sources of water supply. They shall attend to the selling of timber and wood from such lands, whenever such selling shall be deemed expedient, and shall make due account of such sales and the proceeds arising therefrom. On or before the 15th day of December in each year, they shall report to the Governor their official action during the preceding year, and such information as may be useful in preserving the forests of the State and maintaining the supply of water.

Sec. 6. In addition to the powers and duties attaching to the offices of County Commissioners and Road Overseers in the counties of this State, such Commissioners and overseers shall act as conservators of woodlands in their respective localities, and shall enforce the laws and regulations made for the protection and preservation of such woodlands. Said County Commissioners shall, also, to the extent of their power, encourage the planting of trees along water courses and irrigating ditches and in other proper places: shall furnish information to the Forestry Commissioners as they may from time to time require, and report their official acts to them on or before the first day of December of each year.

All forest officers and all peace officers within the State are empowered and required to arrest any and all persons found trespassing upon the woodlands of the State, or by unlawful cutting or destroying timber thereon, or setting fire in a manner to endanger such woodlands; and shall cause actions to be instituted in courts of proper jurisdiction to punish violators of the forestry laws of the State. In all matters pertaining to woodlands and forests, the district officers shall be subject to the county forest officers of their respective counties, and all shall be subordinate to the Forest Commissioners of the State, in their individual or collective capacity.
