It represented, however, the smallest decline since 1954 when cow numbers increased slightly.

Each tree species lias inherent characteristics which may influence your choice. Some grow rapidly, others very slowly. Some species exceed 100 feet at maturity, while others never grow taller than 20 to 30 feet. Some are long lived while others have a short life expectancy. ^Certain varieties cast such dense shade that grass will not tree. Some trees cause objectionable litter when they drop their seeds or fruits.
