Two images on a common background. The top image is of a mountainside that has been clear-cut with the stumps left in the ground ("stump pasture"). The bottom image is of an intact old-growth spruce forest with a trail running through it. The locations of these images are unknown, but are likely the Adirondack or Catskill mountains. The date is unrecorded, but probably ca. 1900-1920. This image was likely created to record the forestry activities of the New York State Forest, Fish and Game Commission, Conservation Commission, or Conservation Department.
