BIRDSLEY GRANT NORTHROP
American clergyman, educator, state official, author and forestry advocate
(1817 - 1898)

An eminent educator says: "Any teacher who has no taste for trees, shrubs, or flowers is unfit to be placed in charge of children." Arbor Day has enforced the same idea, especially in those States in which the pupils have cast their ballots on Arbor Day in favor of a State tree and State flower. Habits of observation have thus been formed which have led youth in their walks, at work or play, to recognize and admire our noble trees, and to realize that they are the grandest products of nature and form the finest drapery that adorns the earth in all lands.
      - [Arbor Day]

Arbor Day has fostered love of country.
      - [Arbor Day]

So remarkable have been the results of Arbor Day in Nebraska, that its originator is gratefully recognized as the great benefactor of his State. Proofs of public appreciation of his grand work are found throughout the State. It glories in the old misnomer of the geographies, "The Great American Desert," since it has become so habitable and hospitable by cultivation and tree planting. Where, twenty years ago, the books said trees would not grow, the settler who does no plant them is the exception.
      - [Arbor Day]
