An enlarged edition will soon be published under the title of "Tree-planting, Economic and Ornamental, and Village Improvement."

Public interest in rural adornment is rapidly increasing in Connecticut. This good work should go on till not a school-house, dwelling, or street is left without the simple and grand adornment of shade trees. A little foresight will show that no community can afford to be without a Village Improvement Association. In many towns such organizations have already done incalculable good in cultivating public spirit, quickening social and intellectual life,and enhancing the value of real estate. I shall be happy to co-operate with public-spirited citizens who are moving in this matter and will lecture on this subject without charge either for services or expenses in any town in Connecticut.
