T. B., Leavenworth, Kansas, writes: "A friend of mine in a part of this State where there is no timber, wishes the Gardener's Monthly to advise him whether it is better to sow seed of timber trees where they are to stand, or to set out young trees?"
[As an abstract question we would have no hesitation in saying that a seedling tree never moved, would come into use much earlier than one transplanted; but as a practical question it will be found much best to set out the seedling trees, except perhaps in a few rare instances. - Ed. G. M].
