In these memoirs Charles A. Scott, a Kansas State University graduate from Westmoreland, Kansas, describes his experience in the Division of Forestry, U.S. Department of Agriculture from 1901 to 1907. His 1901 survey team, led by Royal S. Kellogg of Fay, Kansas, recommended sites for forest reserves in Nebraska. They researched tree growth across the Great Plains, including the growth of Catulpa trees in Hutchinson, Kansas. In 1902 President Theodore Roosevelt approved the recommended sites as the Dismal River, North Platte, and Niobrara Forest Reserves. Scott later served as State Forester and Professor of Forestry at Kansas State, Secretary of the Kansas State Horticultural Society, and State Director of the Shelterbelt Project. He also developed the first wholesale evergreen nursery west of the Missouri River.
