This series is comprised of a single report, the Forestry Planting Report. The overall report consists of several single-page reports on the condition of trees planted by the State Forest Service along highways and on state and private property. The reports list the names of landowners, addresses, trees planted, acreage planted, the growth and condition of the trees, planting site soils, and planting stock sources. Some pages have additional hand-drawn surveys and notes on the reverse.
