Investigations made by the IViins)! tuiila State college foresters show that tiiauy wood lots do not hae a good protective mantle. Nature develops a protection against drying wind and tonus In the form of a mantle com pescd of the branches of long downed tXOM along the outer edges of the w tssl hat. For a distance of II fly to sctenty tr feet from the edio the wood lot hould be disturbed us little us -o;I bio und preferably not at all r.vept to remove dead trees and an occasional large, overmature tree.
