These three documents--"Some Mistakes in Tree-planting," "Recommendations for Guidance in Forest Planting on the Flood-damaged Lands of the Kansas River Valley," and "How To Transplant a Tree"--provide guidance on forest planting in Kansas. In 1905 President Theodore Roosevelt established the Kansas National Forest west of Garden City and south of the Arkansas River and Atchinson, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad. Just 10 years later, after severe drought killed most of the trees, President Wilson abolished the forest in 1915.

Date: ca. 1900-1915
