About a year ago, 1 budded a pecan

dormant until the following Spring,
when tho sprout was cut baek to thu bud.
A shoot grew Irom the bud last Summer,
whleli measured neany ten feet, 't his
shoot has also thrown out several laterals,
measuring from two to four feet each.
Last Winter I cut down a number of my
