While the writer was making a canvass of Buffalo County, Nebraska, during August, 1922, for the purpose of eradicating the common barberry, he became interested in trees and shrubs usually planted in rural dooryards. Buffalo County is situated on the north bank of the Platte river, near the south-central part of Nebraska, in the semiarid region. The rainfall is about twenty-five inches per year as an average, with years of much less, as was the year 1922, when the amount was about nineteen inches.
