PINE TREE BEETLE
KILLING THE TREES
Methods of Counteracting: the Inroads
of the Beetle are Discussed at rei
ser Meeting?Many Trees Dying.
In the presence of one of the most
representative gatherings of farmers
and timber men ever held in the Pied
mont Sectio: oi be stnto, Mr. B. B.
Mason, of the Spartanburg station of
Forest Insect investigation of agri
culture .delivered an address recent
ly in Pelzer on the pine bark beetle,
its destructive work and the best
means of preventing and destroying it.
The audience was composed of rep
resentative farmers all of whom had
been heavy losers of timber because
of the destructive ravages of the in
sect. Many of them Came from the
distance of 20 or more miles, while
there were one or two from Laurons,
Anderson and other parts of the state.
Ho stated that (he pine bark beetle
had been with us for years, but only
in the last few years bad scientists
discovered that it was what was de
stroying the pine timber throughout
the South, and only recently had its
ravages grown to such an extent as it
is now. He said that the beetle
usually riddle a tree and kill it in 30
days. He cited instances where as
much as 45 acres have been killed
in that short time.
He warned the farmers against cut

August, September and October. ?e
the smell of the pitch attracts the
beetles and means certain destruction
of the rest of the timber left stand
ing. "Burn your timber and the bark
before February 15th," said Mr. Ma
son, "and don't leave any of it till
spring, as it contains millions of bee
tles which will escape and continue
the work of destruction."
"In November the beetles go into
living trees, and instead of coming
out they spend the winter, Then is
the time to go after them. It is only
necessary to destroy the trees in
which they are wintering and burn
The certain indication that tree is
filled with the beetles is when it turns
light green, yellow or greenish brown.
Then one can be certain that be has
trees which have the beetle.
He stressed the Importance of co
operation, saying that nothing could
be done without the assistance of all.
Mr. Mason summed up his Interesting
and instructive remarks with the fol
"First: Don't cut any living or dead
timber during the summer months
without specific advice?this is to pro
tect your own timber.
Second: From November on through
the winter watch out for trees that are
changing to light green, yellow or
greenish brown; cut them down and
burn the bark?you don't have to both
er with old dead trees or trees that
died during the summer?there are
none of Jhese beetls in them. This is
to protect your own timber and your
neighbor's timber as well.
Third: Get all your neighbors work
ing together. Cooperate. We can only
^iw advice. Your salvation lies in
your own hands.
The dying (,f this pine means a great
deal to the South. We can tell you
how to save it. If you follow our ad
vice you can save it. Let us unite
and do it. Wo want the names and ad
dresses of every owner of pine timobr
who desires to follow our advice so
we can send him instructions. Let us
have your names before you go.
We hope and believe you are going
to be missionaries to help save the
pine that is left.
You owe it to yourselves.
You owe it to your neighbors.
Mr. Mason desires to announce that
he will be glad to send literature to
all who will address the Forest Insect
Investigating Station at Spartanburg.
Prom lime to lime bulletins on this
subject wlil he issued by the depart
ment in Washington, for distribution
in the South.
From the audience which was pres
ent it could be seen that there are
a great number of farmers in the
Piedmont section of the state who
have suffered from the destructive'
effects of the beetles. Some promi
nent farmers present stated that they
had lost as much as loot) cords in a
short space of time. This shows the
quick and destructive work of the
beetles. It was seen from the interest
taken and the crowd that was present
that the meeting will be of immense
benefit to the farmers of this section.

knowledge of men and affairs peculiar

Jones would be irrestistible. He has
no superior in the state as a stump
