This looks like it might be important reading for us. This is from 1891.

Oddly enough they mention shelter belts. In other words we knew we were screwing everything up before the dust bowl happened. We are so awesome.

"The attempts to grow the sugar and red maples, sycamore, black locust, butternet, black walnut and western catalpa have so far been unsuccessful."
Good to know, I'll read the rest later when I'm out in the bush."

Caragana was also mentioned.

Thanks will take a look at it tomorrow, tonight it is too hard for me to read this online book.

Keep up the good work, cheers.
