Early Spring in the Forests of the Saarland and Lothringen

Did the early immigrants from Kreis Saarburg look in vain for some of these wonderful signs of spring in Wisconsin which they knew so well  from their Heimatland?  And did they compare the amount of Wisconsin woodland they now owned to the forests of the old homeland, which belonged only to the Prussian Kaiser or the French Emperor?
