The "Dunkeld hybrid larch" (Larix eurolepis, Henry), considered to be a cross between the Japanese larch (Larix kaempferi, Sarg.) ♀, and the European larch (L. decidua, Mill.) ♂, has been planted in Great Britain for some thirty years (5) where its vigor of growth, slender habit, and resistance to disease (4) have shown it to be highly desirable as a forest tree. During this period it has found its way to arboreta and private collections in America; but its use here, in forestry, has been more recent, (2), and limited to comparatively few plantations. The N. Y. State Conservation Department began experimenting with this tree in New York nearly a decade ago, and since 1934 has been raising stock in considerable quantity for use in the state reforestation program. For this reason, a description of the first planting which, though small, received a rather high degree of personal attention, may be of some interest at this time.
