Excerpt from Forestry in Minnesota
This book has been prepared especially for the classes in forestry in the School of Agriculture of the University of Minnesota. It is really a compilation of the lectures and mimeographed notes that I have found useful in my experience in teaching the elementary principles of forestry. The word forestry is here used in the broad sense in which it is often used in this section and includes much that, strictly speaking, would come under several allied heads. In the use of botanical names I have followed, so far as possible, those given by Dr. George B. Sudworth in his "Nomenclature of the Arborescent Flora of the United States," which has been adopted as the standard for the Agricultural Colleges and Experiment Stations. Otherwise the Index Kewensis has been followed. But where these names are different from those commonly used by horticulturists in current literature the more familiar term is also generally given in brackets.
I have received many kind suggestions and criticisms from Dr. Otto Lugger, St. Anthony Park; Hon. L. R. Moyer, Montevideo; and Messrs. John S. Harris, La Crescent; Clarence Wedge, Albert Lea; F. H. Nutter, Minneapolis, and J. M. Underwood, Lake City. Professor Conway McMillan has furnished many specimens for drawings. My assistant, Mr. W. A. Wheeler, has given much careful attention to the revision of the manuscript and has corrected many errors that would otherwise have crept in. I am especially indebted to all these parties who have aided me in this work, and I wish to extend my sincere thanks for their interest and kindness.
