This magnificent compilation of maps was published in 1900 to accompany the Twenty-First Annual Report of the United States Geological Survey, directed by Charles D. Walcott. Thirty-nine separate sheets, most lithographed by Julius Bien & Co., cover the nation’s forested areas between the Indian Territory and the Pacific Coast, including the Alaska Territory.

Each map presents a variety of information based on local species of trees (with emphasis on those of economic value), geographic regions, land composition and geologic strata. Topography is shown in contour and major transportation routes are noted, where applicable. Henry Gannett was the primary cartographer behind the creation of each map, whereas the triangulation, surveying, and land classification was performed by a variety of assistants.
