ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Written on the accompanying envelope, "These two pictures show Aldo Leopold in characteristic poses on that 140-acre farm on the Wisconsin River, a weekend retreat for the Professor of Wildlife Management, Wisconsin U. In one he's shown inspecting a young white pine tree, and the other about to embark on an inspection and bird-watching tour. The cane had a pointed end for probing purposes. When purchased it was a very much run-down farm with fertility near exhaustion. Every spring for 18 years planted 2000 trees. Now fast reaching its original forested aspect." This image was used in R. Bruce Allison's 1982 book, Wisconsin's Famous and Historic Trees, p. 108. It also appears in the 2005 second edition of that work, retitled Every Root an Anchor, p. 98.
