RECOGNIZE VALUE OF TREES
Courts Have Not Been Slow to Take
Step to Prevent Their Wanton
Various auras havs been determined
br courts as the proper award for de
struction ot street trees, and some
have been accounted worth $1,000 or
$3,000. A food tree representa a con
jBlderable value to the abutting prop
perty and courts have readily recog
nised It The following Is from the
"The New York court of appeaJs
has approred an award of damages in
th sum ot $500 in favor ot a property
owner against a contracting company
lor the destruction of each shade
tree abutting his property, with an ad
ditional $1,000 for Incidental damago
to his estate. This Is probably the
highest value that bas ever been set
upon the city shade trees and demon
strates that there Is a value to the
tree not to be computed by its timber
"While the great value of forests as
Regards their Umber product, as well
s their aid in the conservation of
Talnfall, has been thoroughly estab

lessons in tbe value of urban ahade
trees. Communities nowadays are
taking great pride In their shade
trees, appreciating the fact that their
ahade adds to the comfort of living,
especially la summer time, and thus
contributes to the value of homes and
of real estate in general. Here la
Washington these shade trees are one
of the city's assets, perhaps appre
ciated more by the newcomer or visi
tor than by the resident who has been
long accustomed to them. The trees
which we have ahould be carefully
conserved, and at every opportunity
more trees should be planted. The
shade trees of olty streets should be
regarded as a public institution, a fac
tor in the publlo health and comfort,
to be sustained and developed as a
BOUNDARIES FOR THE PARK
No Good Reason Why Straight Lints
of Government Survey 8hould
The determination of the bound
axles of a park is often very intimate
ly related to radical questions of de
sign. The boundaries adopted for a
park are often the boundaries used by
the previous private owners, and In
the west almost all such boundaries
are the straight lines of the original
government land surveys or of sub
divisions based upon them and which
are generally purely arbitrary rec
tangular boundaries bearing no har
monious relation with the topography
except in the few cases where the
land is flat- 8uch arbitrary rectangu
lar boundaries are often hideous mis
fits with re pact to the local topog
raphy, particularly If, aa la often the
case, tbe site has been selected for a
park because of its strongly-marked
topography. Such arbitrary boundaries
art also sometimes badly out ot ac
cord with certain requirements of a
good design for the Improvement of
tbe partloular ground in question. In
these bard boundary lines there la a
fine chance for skillful planting, ao
that roads doubling back from the
line ahould not too closely approach
the actual boundary. It should appear
that traffic can go no farther straight
ahead by reason 'of encountering tbe
edse of a forest Bo planted the
park may be made to appear many
times Its actual else and the extent
need never be known by visitors.
Conservation of Beauty.
Tbe county counoil of Hanta, Eng
land, la a body not particularly known
to co-temporary fame, yet It is entitled
to a degree of grateful recognition It
eelt in the honorable remembrance ot
the world. That is because it has set'
a precedent for the protection of beau
tiful natural scenery from spoliation for
sordid purposes, on tbe whole the most
advanced and effective of which we
nave knowledge. Hants is by no
means the supremely soenlc county of
England, though it contains many
spots of rare beauty; but its govern-.
ing body does not mean to nave it. dis
figured, and accordingly It has taken
strenuous action under tbe advertise
ment regulations, act, which was pass.
ed four year ago, and which many
have supposed to be a dead letter.
The law authorizes local bodies to,
forbid the erection of advertising
boardings where they will disfigure
fine scenery, and it bas been held,
that a local authority must specify the
precise places and areas which are
thus to be protected.

would demand a change.
