(000938) Linen Postcard. Trees - Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. Chicago, IL: Curt Teich & Co.. Excellent. Unused. Printed on front: the Poem 'Trees' by Kilmer. Printed on back: Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest lies far back in the mountains of North Carolina, near the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. This stand of timber, 3,800 acres in extent, is to be preserved in perpetuity as a tribute to the man who wrote perhaps the most widely known poem about trees. Beneath one of the giant hemlock trees, amidst the breath-taking beauty of misty waterfalls, cascades and profuse vegetation, a bronze plaque, mounted on a granite boulder, bears the simple inscription: Joyce Kilmer, 165th Infantry, Rainbow Division, Soldier and Poet. Author of Trees. Born in New Brunswick, N.J., December 6, 1886. Killed in action in France, June 30, 1918 (North Carolina)
