Forest- Trees and Their Cultivation.
-At -a nSeeting o the Farmers-Club,
Kcw York; Andrew S. Puller a practi
- calphorticulturist of -Brooklyn ,-Long
Island, gave a lcctui e on the subject ot
the culture of Forest Trees., ,Jt being a
matter of more practicalinpoitanc"e to
the dwellcis on our great prahies than
to the farraeis of "New Yorjc, however
important it may be considered there,
we are pleased to condense a portion ot
it for our columns. Mr. FullersUtcd,
That the only place wheic a complete
collection of American tiecs can be
found, was iii the paiks of the city ot
Many kinds of valuable trees arc be
coming very scarce, and he therefore
recommended that all the choicest soits
of valuable timber treeb should be plant
ed upon many an acre in that vicinity
thaMs almost woithless for any other
.purpose than foiti ces.
It is a mistaken idea that men must
be professional imiserymcn to grow for
est trees. Every farmer can grow them
-as easily as he can grow corn.
.'He spoke of the immense advantages
of surrounding prairie farms with belts
of forest trees. In manyicases a crop
of foiest trees would be lnorcrprofitable
than any other crop.
lie then gave a most interesting ac
count of the planting of forest trees
upon the estate of the Earl of Fife,
.Scotland. In some places, the trees
were planted upon the sides of hills so
-steep that -men were let 'down, by ropes
to do the work, llow many situations
of the same kind in this country might
uc pianicu witu trees.
lie related a fact given in a letter
from the Sixth Earl of Haddington,
which stated that his mother caused
large bodies of forest trees to be plant
ed; some of the land was a drifting
sand when naked, and worthless for
other cultivation. f
; $Ir. ?Fuller said he had grown seed
ling maples, to one year old, at an ex
pense of 1 a thousand. He raised
40,000 seedlings upon the eighth of an
acre, at an actual expense of 18. His
method is to sow them in beds, three
feet wide and one foot apart, covering
the seed only half an inch deep. The
plants must be carefully hoed, and kept
clear of weeds. The plants can be trans
planted at one year old to lows four
iM apart, fetting the plants two" feet
apart, trimming off the side branches
and'ciifting pff the, tap roots. At two
years old, 'several sorts of forest' trees,
thus treated, will be twelve or fifteen feet
high in rich soil then, every other tree
may be reraoyed to other situations.
The hickory must have the tap root cut,
to lender the trees fit for transplanting.
It will grow much more rapidly also,
and so will several other sorts of trees
by cutting the tap roots.
As the trees grow in the nursery rows
you may take them out until they stand
eight feet apart each way, which will
give 680 trees to the acre. What these
would be worth, of course, depends up
The seeds of sugar maple ripen in
Autumn, but do. not germinate, till in
the Spring. - ' A
The seeds may be sown as soon as
ripe, in beds ; or mixed w ith moist sand
in-boxes and kept in the cellar, ot out
doors, as freezing docs not injure them.
The American elm is one of the most
-ornamental trees, and of very rapid
growth. The seed ripens the first of
JUne, and should be sown as soon" as
ripe, and apportion will germinate t
once,rbut most of them not. until next
All forest tree seeds appear to need
to be covered, very lightly. They germ
inate lest when kept continually moist.
iiiiuiciuuu 15 pienty,.uis Dest to
sow coarse seeds, such as wajnutsjiick
'otymits, &c, in single drills, "wide
apart. This gives room for root prun
ing, which should always be done the
reason before taking them up.
It is probable that several of our ev
ergreen trees can be grown for profit,
as well as ornament. It is certain that
many bare spots could be occupied
profitably with some kind of forest trees
and "their cultivation should be more
thought of by our American farmers.
This is, an important subject for dis
cussion at meetings of fruit growers and
farmers' clubs, among the Western set
tlers. We have so frequently referred
to this subject in the Valley Farmer,
