  The success of the plantings may be judged by the following percentage
of living trees at the end of the first season's growth, based on actual
counts:

  Up to the present time, the conifers and especially the white and red
pines and Norway spruce have been advocated for general planting in
the state. The Commission has deemed it advisable to enlarge on this
        NORWAY SPRUCE PLANTATION 18 YEARS OF AGE
policy so as to include the best broad-leaved trees. From the standpoints
of beauty, rapidity of growth and commercial value, the basswood, red
oak and white ash are considered to be the best species, and these will
be grown in the nurseries. These trees will be ready for distribution dur-
ing the spring of 1918. They are of particular value for planting in the
hardwood belt in the southern part of the state, but also are very well
suited to the heavier soils in the northern counties.
