Volumes were obtained from samples established in Forest Inventory Zone(s) 2, 4 & 5[.] The enclosed forest cover index map is a composite reduction of sixteen 1/2 mile to 1 inch forest cover maps on which forest strata have been collected into very broad classes. The entire series comprising of 149 index maps and summaries, covering the Province, are being distributed in 1958. File all summaries, as received, to obtain complete set." -- Map envelope
