there are growing several thousands of trees in prime condition some of the trees are 20 feet high and there are very few miss This grove of mine is not an ac but is the result of having taken good care of the and any farmer who will use a little common sense and expend a little labor can do the But while I claim that trees will grow anywhere on the prairie they must be treated in a certain One cant grow trees in the easy careless way you may do back Bast If you have the idea that you can take any cind of trees and plant any old any it will be a To start you have your and in good and all the grass worked out of it Trees will grow on breaking all right that tie year after the land has been but it is much better to put n a crop or two of potatoes Un jss the land is in good condition when you plant you are liable to have ots of trouble If land is good summerfallow should be done before Last week in April or first half of May are he best times to There are a number of sorts of trees that will bat I will just give the name of few that have proven absolutely pendable with Those are Manir oba green Russian pop several kinds of willows best or low wet land and Do not try to plant large thinking are striking a short cut to get i forest the smaller trees are the Do not set out narrow belte or lngle as they will be hard to teep clean and too much exposed to he PlanJ at least air rows wide and en rows are still better plant four eet apart each which will allow one horse cultivator to go between On the west and north side of your building are the best place for a As soon as your trees are or at leaet a couple of weeks buy a one horse cultivator and run it through the rows several times during June and Do not cultivate after August as this will cause the trees to keep growing and if the wood does not ripen they are apt to especially quack ia the most deadly enemy of young and if you let this get the best of you your grove is bound to If you want trees make up your mind that you will have nothing in that patch but and make war on wsjeds and Now if you have planted the right kind of trees in tte right kind of prepared and kept trees cul they should be big enough to shade the ground and take care of themselves In four or five When your trees get big enough so you caiuwt run the cultivator through ths rows any you must koep ao eye on them just the It there is grass surrounding the it Is bound to creep in and if you left any grassy spots among these trees these are bound to get bigger every The only remedy for 1f you csat put a foot or so of straw on top of these gratis spots this will smother the grass and pre vont it from Watch out for doacl for matter how well you jthere la always a few trees that from some cause or other will So if you dont want openings in your plantation be sure to replant the next Never trim away the lower branches of your trees in a Your who have no but who know all about will advise you to trim your and while this may be a good plan iu or it will not do If I had followed all ad vice I have recelv od along this I should now have a grass plot and a few straggling Let all the branches grow and oul tie sunlight Nature THE
