Those who think it worth while to encourage street tree-planting as an incident in forestry should at least endeavor to educate the street tree-planter what to choose. The streets in Canadian towns follow the poor example of many American ones, and plant little else but the silver maple. There will be a fall in the price of tooth-picks if this sort of tree continues in the favor of planters. Montreal varies the planting acceptably by using a good deal of ash, and in Quebec some lindens are used.
