Issue 2 Full Document

Here is the second issue of TREE PLANTERS' NOTES. It presents a list of the manufacturers and some descriptive information for all of the tree-planting machines now commercially available in the United States and Canada. If such a list is to be good, it must be complete and accurate. We hope that errors or omissions will be called to our attention so that they can be corrected when a new list is issued. Tree-planting machines by the thousands are now in general use all over the country and a good body of experience has been built up as to their usability, capacities, costs, and tree survival. Yet strangely enough, not enough has been published to guide people who are uncertain about using a machine, or who are making a choice between models.
