The occurrence of balsam fir (Abics balsamea) m Allamakee County was recorded by Macbride. He noted it as "Not rare. A fine grove on the hill above Yellow River, near Myron." In Winneshiek County it was recorded by Shimek. He considered it "Not rare, along rocky slopes and above ledges along the upper course of the Upper Iowa River. Most abundant near Kendallville and Bluffton." Several visits to these areas in the last five years enable us to report on present conditions and on certain other species of this region.
