LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL.
U. S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE,
BUREAU OF FORESTRY,
Washington, D. C., July 2, 1901.
SIR: I have the honor to transmit herewith a paper entitled Tree
Planting on Rural School Grounds, prepared by William L. Hall,
Assistant Superintendent of Tree Planting of the Bureau of Forestry,
and to recommend its publication as a Farmers' Bulletin. The paper
deals with thle present condition and needs of rural school grounds and
indicates methods for their improvement. It also suggests important
lines of study for the teacher and school in connection with trees and
forests. The information and advice apply to country churchyards
and to schoolyards in many towns and villages.
As the preparation of this paper involved some consideration of
landscape architecture, the subject of which is outside the province of
the Bureau of Forestry, the paper was referred to Mr. Frederick
Law Olmsted, jr., of Massachusetts, an authority on landscape architecture,
to whom acknowledgment is due for valuable suggestions.
Hon. JAMES WILSON,
Secretary of Agriculture.
