Tree Planting anil a Tree Warden
Here Is a suggestion from the Dal
las News that should fit in well In
"Mayor Holland has done well to
make a tree-planting month out of
all February, rather than a tree
planting day out of February 2. Tree
planting may become less of a cere
mony berause of this change, but It
is likely to become more of a custom.
A very pretty ceremony that Incul
cates both civic and religious sent!-'
incuts can be made out of tree plant-'
lug., Hut we have never made much
use of the opportunity, so that no
sentimental value is sacrificed In the
effort to enlarge the practical good.
"There is one other thing that
Mayor Holland and his colleagues In
municipal authority ought to do.
Tills is to create the office of tree
warden. By doing this they can give
much larger effect to the measure
be has taken to bring about a gen
eral planting of trees. More trees
would ho planted If there were some
one learned in the science of caring
for them to whom the citizen could
resort for counsel. Ndt only would
more trees ho planted, but a larger
part of those planted would survive.
If an abundance of trees is desirable,
as the action of the Mayor suggests
(and of course it Is), then it Is de
sirable enough to Justify the small
expense of a tree warden. We don't
believe there would be a single tax
payer in town to complain If. the
oflice of tree warden were created,
because a tree warden would supply
a want long and frequently felt by
most men who have planted trees.
The value of the trees that every
year die for the want of the Inspec
tion tfnd suggestion that he could
give would pay his annual wage ten
or twenty times over."
