In the report of the Fruit-Growers' Society of Ontario, as made by the Canadian Horticxdturisi, is the following: "It was stated that in many places a demand had sprung up for soft woods, such as Basswood and Poplar, for the manufacture of pulp for paper, and that often broken land which cannot be profitably tilled could be planted with these rapid growing trees with great profit. Many young trees of Ash, Maple, Hickory, etc, could be taken up by farmers, planted for a couple of years in nursery rows where they could be cultivated, and then transplanted to broken ground and hillsides, with great certainty of living.
