Col. M. S. Sullivan made note of the differences in yield in the Scottish Highlands where they had been practicing reforestation and intensive management of the forests, and made recommendations that Newfoundland should establish a Forest Service for Newfoundland. He obtained seeds of two Larch species and used these in experimental plots. A Forest Service was indeed established, and a tree nursery at Deer Park, Salmonier was begun in 1937 and managed by Forestry Corps veterans.
