now there were several problems with this first board
I did not cover up the sides of the corrugated cardboard, so the hills looked terrible.  it was a good try but I also wound up planting too many trees
also the process should start from the bottom most layer of cardboard, and with this first board I began at the tops of the hills.  as a result there was some warping between the areas of hilly terrain

so, I set out to improve the idea.
I chose another good location in Pennsylvania and found an excellent topo map of the battle of germantown

here is the first picture of this new board, showing how I used long thin strips of paper to cover up the sides of EACH contour line
