Mr. Suel Foster tella the Country Gentleman: "Forest timber, windbreaks and ornamental trees," was a subject of much interest in our meeting. No man in oui State has done so much in this line as Hon. C. E Whiting, of Monroe county, on the west line of the State; and no man in the State is doing so much to instruct and encourage tree planting as H. H. McAfee, Professor of Forestry and Horticulture at our Agricultural College. He is a man who puts his hand to the work; knows how to do it, and when it is rightly done. His department at the farm has not been enlarged, as the interests of our State require, but so far it is progressing in the right direction.
