  Journal of Arboriculture 14(3): March 198879 TOWNS WITH TREE NAMES by F W Holmes Almost as a hobby I began two years ago toenter on two data base computer diskettes, from a zip-code (postal code) manual, the names of allU.S. cities and towns with tree names. The twofiles now contain 2,210 entries: 1,293 names ofparticular tree kinds (Black Oak, Arkansas 72414)and 917 with names about trees in general(Edgewood, Georgia 31907). For oaks, 183towns have been named For particular trees, I also entered a category word.  In the case of foreign words, I used theEnglish meaning (Boston, from Dutch bos =forest).The data can be listed by state(s), town(s), zip code,  and genus/category; eight different tablesare possible. Each table can be sorted within onecategory by another category. For example, alltowns in Massachusetts that are named for  elm,  orall particular tree-named towns in Illinois, or allstates that have a town with a certain name.Figure  1  shows the U.S. towns named for walnut,and Figure 2 shows the particular tree-namedtowns in West Virginia.

Incertain cases I chanced to know that a town namewent beck to a tree name in the Dutch, German, orFrench language. For Spanish names in the  Puer to Rico list, I consulted a Guatemalan refugee.And in a few cases  I  know that a town name from acertain American Indian language meant a tree(Orono.Maine and Chicopee,Massachusetts bothmean an area of elm trees). But: 1.  The very many tribal languages among ourIndians may have introduced many moretree names into our town names, where onlythe local inhabitants would know. 2.  Town names in the U.S. may derive from anyof the world's languages.

The projects are prioritized by a research committee of the ISA and selected by thetrustees of the Memorial Research Trust. A major component in the selection procedure is the usefulnessof the obtained data to the arborist. The Trust through 1987 had distributed funds to 132 projects. Thesecover a wide range of subjects and have been distributed to several states, provinces, institutions andscientists. The four indices that follow will illustrate the scope and distribution.The number in the index that follows the subject or name refers to the number of the grant. These arelisted in your 1987 ISA Yearbook beginning on page 27. Please refer to this yearbook for a more com-plete understanding of these indices.
