The Value of Christmas Trees

"...there is no reason why the joy associated with the Christmas evergreen may not be a means of arousing in the minds of children an appreciation of the beauty and usefulness of trees; and keen appreciation of the beauty and usefulness of trees is a long stop toward the will to plant and care for them (Arthur Sowder, US Forest Service, 1949)."

Algae Treatments

Just got finished putting out materials for algae. There are 2 plots -- one in Avery and one in Mitchell. The initial treatments were made the first part of May. Today Jerry and I made a second treatment of the Kocide in one plot, and also treated some trees with the new growth out.

With all this rain and cool weather, I'm thinking that we might have a lot of algae in trees again this year! I'll keep everyone posted on the results, but it will probably be August before we know anything.
