### Abstract

Let $X$ be a connected non-compact $2$-dimensional manifold possibly with boundary and $\Delta$ be a foliation on $X$ such that each leaf $\omega\in\Delta$ is homeomorphic to $\mathbb{R}$ and has a trivially foliated neighborhood. Such foliations on the plane were studied by W. Kaplan who also gave their topological classification. He proved that the plane splits into a family of open strips foliated by parallel lines and glued along some boundary intervals. However W. Kaplan's construction depends on a choice of those intervals, and a foliation is described in a non-unique way. We propose a canonical cutting by open strips which gives a uniqueness of classifying invariant. We also describe topological types of closures of those strips under additional assumptions on $\Delta$.

**Key words:** Foliation, non-compact surface, fiber bundles.
