    When boys and trees are good comrades, nothing is to be feared for either of them. --News-Tribune, Detroit, Mich. The Tree Planters of America-A glorious idea, and I believe it is so good and grand that it will be carried out by its own virtues. It is one of the finest - . things ever proposed to the American people. - James T. Du Bois American Consul-General at Singapore. With distinct pleasure and full appreciation, I have read your plan for the organization of the The Tree planters of America. It is the best suggestion I have seen on the matter considered. The conception seems really inspired. To organize the American boys in such thorough and systematic way, and under such splendid leadership in good work, is an endeavor that cannot be too highly commended. Aside from the grea benefits that will certainly come through such wise plans for reforestation, the principles of patriotic devotion incidentally inculcated will thrill the nation, and from border to border will pulse as one great throbbing heart, loyalty and love for the future of the whole country. - William J. Northen, Atlanta Formerly Governor of Georgia. FOREWORD H E agriculture, industries and commerce of the United States, and disastrous forest fires, have consumed the timber of 300,000,000 acres, out of the original forests of 850,000,000 acres. Most of this timber has been cut and marketed, or destroyed, during recent years, and the remainder is rapidly vanishing in the ever-increasing demands of modern activities. As a nation we are fast approaching a timber famine, and, unless immediate, thorough and persistent action be taken for country-wide replenishment, our successors will have just and ample reason for criticismand condemnation. Private forestry has accomplished something. The few notable instances only indicate what might be achieved by a general movement. A report from the Department of Agriculture, approved by Secretary Wilson, May 29, 1909, gives the total area of planted forest land as not exceeding 965,000 acres. Yet the total area of land which woula yield its greatest returns from planted forest is more than 56,000,000 acres. Surely here is a broad and promising field for the timely proposition - The Tree Planters of America. The suggestion is an American idea, presented by the National Business League of America for the practical reforestation of the United States, and for the physical, moral and spiritual up-lifting and usefulness of the American Boy of the twentieth century and the countless 3 generations to . follow him. Systematic planting, culture, and conservation of trees prompt utilization of fallen timber for fuel or the industries a permanent and profitable wood lot for every farm co-operation of Art with Nature in the transformation of the landscape from the unsightly to the beautiful. These should be cardinal duties of the youthful Tree Planters. The farmer should raise his crop of trees as he does other products of the farm. It will, however, be a crop in perpetuity, from father to son through all future years. With the Tree Planters active the cost of reforestation will be reduced to a minimum the burden of expense resting lightly on each unit of the movement, ie., on the nation, state, county, township and individual. There is nothing in the plan to inspire an excessive militant spirit or to develop habits of destructiveness...
