The Station correspondence has many queries in regard to selection of the most desirable shade and ornamental trees, shrubs, and small fruits, for the home grounds.
The appended notes give the results of long trial on the College grounds, supplemented by reports from intelligent amateurs in the north half of the state. At this time the selections are made specially for the parts of the state north of the 42d parallel, yet the few select varieties and species do well in all parts of the state.
