As you might guess there are plenty of pines and firs, but also included are the Manitoba and Sugar Maples, a Choke Cherry which we are told produces tart fruit ideal for preserves, the American Elm which like its European counterparts has been attacked by Dutch Elm disease, White and Yellow Birch, Ironwood and the wonderfully named Shagbark Hickory with edible nuts. The backs contain plenty of information in both English and French and an album was also produced to house the collection. The cards are size 68 x 36mm.
