The students of the seventh division of the gymnasium “Hinukh” are planting five trees in the garden “HaShomer HaTsa’ir” [“The Young Guardian” - I believe this is the name of a Zionist organization] in memory of the 5th of Kislev 5678 – 30 M [probably marks] [it goes on like this, with an accounting of the plantings and their cost, until:] Sara Akonovska and Joshua Endewelt are planting one tree in the “Center” Forest in the name of the “Sholem Aleichem” elementary school – 10 M.
The columns on the right are headed “Marks” and “Pennies”.

The dates vary, some of those appearing later in the list are earlier than 5 Kislev.

Some of the records are for groups, some for individuals (e.g. A person "planting" in honor of his brother's Bar Mitsvah.

It is perhaps worth noting that the majority of trees In this list (whether single or in batches) cost 6 Marks per tree.

To this very day, you can donate money to the Keren Kayemet LeIsrael (The Jewish National Fund) for a specific number of trees, in honor of a person, institution, an anniversary, etc.

The above may be a list of such donations.
