Excerpt from The Fores Tree Planter's Manual

To His Excellency, Hon. Knute Nelson, Governor of Minnesota:

Dear Sir: - The legislative act of 1893, basing support for the State Forestry Association, requires an annual report of its doings, together with such other information as it may deem necessary to further advance the interests of forestry.

The Minnesota Board of World's Fair Commissioners liberally provided for an exhibit of our woods at the Columbian Exposition of 1893, in Chicago, Til., and allowed the Association the honor of official representation. The exhibit ranked with the first class, and awarded accordingly. Great interest was manifested in our woods by citizens of other states and nationalities, and earnest inquiries made as to their extensiveness for commercial uses. Soon after the close of the exposition, the commissioners tendered the entire exhibit to the Forestry Association, as state property in trust, and re-erected it in the Main Building on the State Fair Grounds, preserving its original form greatly improved.

During the fiscal year the Association published and distributed 35,000 copies of the Tree Planter's Manual and other forestry pamphlets, besides the ninth edition in the report of the State Agricultural Society. The secretary also prepared the forestry department in the report of the State Horticultural Society, and President Stevens, in the annual of the Farmers' Institute. Under the direction of the World's Fair commissioners, the secretary edited another 32-page pamphlet on forestry, entitled "Minnesota and Its Flora," and distributed the 10,000 copies at the Columbian Exposition. The aggregate of these several pamphlets is 70,000, added to which should be mentioned our other forestry literature issued in The Progressive Age, Farm, Stock and Home and other journals, reaching weekly and semi-monthly hundreds of thousands of readers.

The association expended $94.70, of which $47.75 were new membership funds, for forest seedlings and seeds, and distributed the same among people calling for them. Most of these plants were evergreens.

The association has now arranged to distribute mail packages of the Jack Oak Acorns to be planted this fall as tests for wind-breaks.

An effort was made to raise evergreens for next years free distribution, but the dryness of the-purchased seeds and the severe drouth brought only failure.

In presenting this summary of work, we respectfully call the attention of your excellency to this report, especially to what relates to the needs of legislation on irrigation, forest reservation, forest zoology, forest fires and forest education in our common schools.
