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)."

NCTA Meeting

Hope everyone can come to the National Christmas Tree Association annual meeting in Winston this week.

I will be speaking on Friday morning. My talk is called, "Getting Personal With Pests." We have it on-line if you'd like to look at it. It is found at:

It's kind of a big file, so it will take awhile to pull up.

I'll also be on two of the farm tours. I'll be speaking on Saturday morning at Harry Yates' farm on elongate hemlock scale. Then in the afternoon I'll be speaking at Omni farm on scouting, pest control and our organic demonstration.
