The tabulation presented in this article was made when the author was faced with the question of what proportion of the commercially important United States tree species occur in the East. It was made possible by the completion of the new Check List of Native and Naturalized Trees of the United States, including Alaska, prepared by Dr. Elbert L. Little, Jr., under the supervision of the Forest Service Tree Name Committee. In this check list, as in the 1927 one by the late George B. Sudworth, commercially important species are designated.
