April 19, 1889 State Herald, Phillips County, Colorado " We received from Forest Commissioner Ensign, some interesting articles on tree culture by J J. E. Furrow, chief of forestry division, Department of Agriculture at Washington. The articles are good, but too long for us to publish them. Among the papers. was a letter from Charles Green, of Le Roy, this state, which is of special interest to the people of this section.
He says " I am located 35 miles north of the north line of Kansas and about 50 miles west of the east line of Colorado on the table lands, 15 miles south of the South Platte. I planted in the spring of 1887 Catalpa Speciosa, Russian Mulberry, White Ash, Soft Maple and White Willow cuttings, all without irrigation, in new, unrotted sod. The losses during the first two seasons were as follows: Out of 144 Catalpas, 18 were dead; of 60 maples, one half succumbed the first season, but of the 30 left, not more than e died the second summer; of the 12 mulberries, only one was killed. The growth was very small except of the willow cuttings, one of which making only a few inches tho first season, but two feet the second season. Box Elder seed planted last February, very thick, did well, making a growth of one to two feet. Ash has not done so well.
Some of my neighbors have tried Black Locust, which in dry, gravelly soil, much poorer than our average soil, made a fine growth. Black Walnut seems to stand the climatr well, but grows slowly.
Mr. Fenrow is of the opinion that it would be a good plan to group trees.
For instance take a tree with light foliage like the locust and plant under it a tree with dense foliage, such as box elder or mulberry. This will shade the ground and prevent evaporation. Tree planting should be studied to make a success of it."
