Background:

The Tree prints shown on this page portray a variety of deciduous and evergreen species found in North America.  This series was published by the State of Pennsylvania in the early 1900s to introduce the public to over 270 kinds of trees of shrubs native to the state.

The prints are based on drawings by Margaretta Washington of Philadelphia based on actual specimens.  All of the major components of the trees are portrayed and noted on the print.

The preface to the series starts with a tribute to the role of trees in our lives:  "Trees are more than mere green things.   They have been man's friends ever since the human race began.  In all ages and in every land they have been giving valuable service to man.  They are among his best friends and greatest helpers.  They produce many of our most useful and helpful gifts and grace the earth with beauty."
