At the solicitation of some of my
friends, who know of my exlerience in
handling forest trees, I have been in
duced to give a few practical ideas as
to the way tree claims ought to be
nlanted Most talmat' re mna' aaring
their claims have not the remotest idea
of what kind of trees they ought to
plant or how they had best ust to work
to gerform the operation of planting to
the best advanlage. This artiete may
be thie means of helping some one to a
proper and practical solution of what
to them ha Ibeen quite a problem, and
if no I will be glad.
The law relquires that ten acres on
each quarter section must be set with
trees, and the distance in to be four by
four feet apart. Thin makes the num
her of trees nec.nsary to each claim
anmount to 27,5.0). or 2,700 to each
acre. The land should he brokel up.
at least one year blefore thte tintm
the treem are to be .st out, and ii
two years before, and a crop taken off,
it would be much Ibtter for the trees
and greatly lese~n thi labor of both
Ilanting and culture. After the ground
in all freshly ploughed in the sppring. it
should he marked of with a four-line
marker, each runping to lie exactly
four feet from thle ,other. These marks
should be run as straight and carefully
as though tlhey were or corn, and must
be run bthlt ways. Thren take a turn
illg plolugh, drive the team no that tile
plough will iinLke ia fulrrow in exact line
with the smark. Ihaving the land side
next to it. ans a gllidt for the trees to be
set by. In these- furrows the roots of
the trees are t0 I: set, one Ieing placed
opposite emach cross mark made by the
marker alhen it went aertms tile field.
Two mnell, or one nalm anld a boy, is all
thie help, nsaesssary to set out a tree
claim after the ground in all prepared
and the furrows made. Set a tree up
straight, with its roots ill the bottom of
the furrow, which wouldl mnak it about
right depthl,and have a man with a clean
bright spade, no it will scour
easily, throw on dirt enough to
cover the roots; hold the tree
in its place while you piick the earth
alove them by steplping on with both
feet. Then paes along to the next
mark and ret a tree there, and in the
same manner the whole hleld ean be
planted, botir easily and exlleitiously.
le next operatimn, after there are a
number of rows planted, is to run over
the rows with a two-hor, cultivator
and fill in the furrows, or if no cultiva.
tor in at hand, take a double-shovel
dlougll and one horse, turning back the
Ihossw earth thrown out by the big
