Helping to keep the bugs (at least the bad ones) out of Christmas!
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)."

OK, I know this is a Fraser fir blog, but I had to include a photo of these hemlocks. They are at my office in Mills River. I treated them 2 years ago for hemlock woolly adelgid with Safari using a soil drench, and they are still growing like gangbusters. We'll be looking closer at Safari for the control of balsam woolly adelgid.
