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)."

HWA Control

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.
