Good Impression Impossible If That
Most Important Point
No matter how smooth and well
constructed the traveled road may be,
If the roadsides aro not cared for, the
highway as a whole will not give n
good Impression. All rubbish should
be removed; the excavations should
be filled and embankments smoothed
and planted with grass wherever It
will grow. Unsightly brush should bu
cut and grubbed ouL Sometimes, how
ever, the brush and small trees. It
suitably trimmed, add to the attrac
tiveness of the roadside.
All trees that are ornamental or
which have value as shade treos
should be preserved and protected, un
less they grow bo close together as
to mako a dense shade. In hot, dry
climates particularly, and, indeed, in
most places, trees ore a considerable
factor In reducing tho cost ot maluta-
nnco, since they lessen tho evapora
tion ot the moisture from the ma
cadam. In exposed places where the
sweep of tho wind would bo otherwise
unbroken tbey servo to prevent In a
moasuro tho blowing away of the
binder from tho road surface. Unfor
