BIENNIAL REPORT
    Forest tree planting on the part of private land owners is constantly
  encouraged by the Conservation Commission. In order to stimulate
  these activities planting plans are prepared for land owners, and thrifty
  planting stock is supplied from the state nurseries at cost. This co-
  operative effort to encourage tree culture in the state has met with a
rea-
  sonable response from land owners, as the sales of planting stock will
  verify. It is safe to predict that this opportunity offered by the Com-
  mission will be taken advantage of in an enlarged way in the future. The
  order blank adopted by the Commission, and the 1917 price list for plant-
  ing stock follows:
