Original Authors' Acknowledgements

The descriptive text (List of 50 Trees) covering the tree characters is largely a compilation rather than the result of original investigations.  Trees in Winter, by Albert Francis Blakeslee and Chester Deacon Jarvis, was freely consulted in the matter of bark characters; Trees of New York State, by H. P. Brown, furnished valuable suggestions in the way of uses; and Common Trees of New York, by J. S. Illick, was followed closely in many particulars.

The cuts for the bulletin were furnished through the courtesy of W. R. Mattoon of the Forest Service.

Common and scientific names follow the Check List of Forest Trees of the United States, by E. L. Little, Jr., Agricultural Handbook No. 541 of the United States Department of Agriculture (1979).
