Dr. Bessey was then Nebraska State Botanist and “Professor of Botany, State University, Lincoln Nebraska.” The State University is now called that University of Nebraska–Lincoln. This document was published as a contribution to the knowledge of the native woody plants of the state. Several reports had been published previously each containing additions and corrections. This report contains a “Special Request” that asked readers around the state to send samples of native trees and shrubs to the author. The report contains a classification list of the various trees and shrubs along with information about where they can be found. A table shows at what elevations the various plants are found. Another table shows how the various plants are distributed around the state. Dr Bessey includes a single page where he speculates on the “Origins of the Nebraska Trees and Shrubs. The report also includes an index.
