  • Description
    Although the act states this is an amendment to an act passed in the fifteenth year of George III, it is in fact referring to an act passed in 1774, the fourteenth year of George III - "An Act to prevent Waste and Destruction of Pine or other Timber Trees, on certain reserved and ungranted Lands in this Province." The original act set aside tracts of land along the Wolastoq (St. John's River) and on Cape Breton to provide a perpetual supply of masts and ship timber to the royal navy, while the amendment allows for the use of wood as shall be necessary in Cape Breton for the use of the fishery.
