This tree, which seldom exceeds the height of thirty or forty feet, is found in the British Provinces, and in the northern part of the United States. It has a soft, white wood with the grain very much interwoven, and is sometimes used in the manufacture of base-ball bats, as it will dent nearly through before breaking. It is a very short-hved tree. It has the common characteristics of the rest of its family, and should be propagated the same way.
