Resettlement administration nursery site, on state road near Newfield, Tompkins County

This barren land most likely contained unviable farms that were purchased by the Resettlement Administration and are now slated to be reforested. A tree nursery is being set up to provide the young trees for the project. The figure near the center is Miles C. Newton, a civil engineer from Cornell University. This image was created to record the reforestation work of the New York State Conservation Department in cooperation with the Resettlement Administration.
