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)."

Update on Endosulfan

Wayne Buhler, the pesticide coordinator for NCSU sent the following message out this morning. It is from Lee Davis with NCDA&CS about the fate of endosulfan. Nothing has been decided yet about how the product will be phased out, but Lee describes what usually happens. Again, when things have been decided, I'll let you know.

"Yes.  The way I understand it is that the EPA and the registrant are currently working out the details of how to cancel the product.  Usually, the EPA will post to the Federal Register a notice to cancel the product and give a date upon which the product is cancelled.  Usually, the EPA will allow product already in the channels of trade or in the hands of the end user to be used up according to label directions.  This is what usually happens, but each cancellation notice is unique.  So, it is not possible to say exactly what instructions might be in the cancellation notice.
