seasons. however, the aggregate acreage of all small areas
which might be planted profitably is enormous.
  Such owners need information on how and when to obtain
trees for planting, what trees to plant with reference to
specific conditions, how to plant, what care is necessary
after planting, and what may be expected in the growth of
plantations.
  The present bulletin has been published primarily for the
use of landowners interested in planting small plots. Partic-
ular emphasis has been given to the problems arising from
specific conditions. Planting conditions in Wisconsin vary
greatly. Consequently, a mere generalization of planting
instructions is of little help. This bulletin considers and dis-
cusses 10 types of planting conditions, one of which will be
applicable to any planting condition in Wisconsin.
  The owner who intends to engage in reforestation work
should identify his particular planting conditions with refer-
ence to the 10 specific conditions listed on page 17, each
of which is described in detail in the pages immediately
following.
