We did not search for large trees, for It was only our purpose to find oat as near as possible the arerage sUo and lcnsth of limber In common uss here.

An other, measured 245 feet In length; four feet In diameter Ave feet from the ground ; at 100 feet It measured three feet In dlsrae ter, and at 160 feet two feet In diameter, and so on. The first of these trees had scarcely any branches for the Drst 100 feet, while the latter had very few for 150 feet.

Tbeo tree' ore beautiful and straight, and have scarce-( Jy any limbs or knots for the Drst 150 fect while above that distance the branches are very small, and offer no Impediment to their being converted Into lumber, or used for -, nihrr nuruie. There are many trees In the mountains adjacent to this place,; which will measure at the ground utweea 40 and 60 feet in clrcumfcrcnce.ind It Is not uncommon to find trees measuring !0 feet In length.
