During the present century, not only have changes taken place, to some extent, in the Opinions of writers on the best mode of cultivation and subsequent management of our timber trees, but in several instances the trees them selves, with respect to some of the most common and useful species in cultivation, are changed, and are found to be less hardy and ill adapted to the climate of North Britain. This is more especially the case with the Scotch Pine and the Larch, and it arises from the importation, for many years past, of large supplies of foreign seed grown in warm districts on the Continent, which produce plants so tender that in this country they form a very precarious crop.
