TREES FROM B&RERS
Plant in Thick Stands to Produce
With Underbrush About Trunks of
Trees Injury by Insects Is Less-*
" ? \ Protection Is Needed for .
? Very Short Period.
(Prepared by -the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Plantations of the locust tree can be
successfully protected from the borer
and grown profitably on a commercial
scale If the trees are planted in thick
stands or mixed with other trees, so
as to produce a densely shaded con
dition during the first ten to fifteen
years. Investigations of the United
States department of agriculture
showed that more' trees were de
stroyed by borers in tracts which had
been pruneW occasionally or closely
grazed, or in which fire had killed out
i the underbrush, thus destroying the'
natural shade produced by weeds and
shrubbery. S S
The denser the underbrush about
the trunks of the trees, the less the
damage done by borers. Trees grow
ing from two to three feet apart were
seldom injured, while nearby isolated
trees were riddled by borers.
All trees and all parts of the tree
are not subject in the same degree to
attack by the borer. . Rough bark pro
vides crevices in which the borers de
posit their eggs. Young trees, less
than one and one-half to two inches
at the base, are not attacked unless
the bark is rough. On younger trees
the borers are found at the base and
?'near rough crotches. Trees with
trunks more than five or six inches in
diameter rarely ..contain Jhe insects.
On such trees the larger branches
frequently are infested; but such in
jury is seldom common enough to do
much harm. Protection from borers
is necessary for only a comparatively
short period during the tree's growth.
Under good growing conditions this
time should not exceed ten years.
The locust is widely planted for
ornamental and shade purposes. It
is highly desirable because it grows
readily in a variety of soils and situ
ations. It grows rapidly and forms a
shapely crown when planted in the
open. But it is frequently attacked
by borers. This is because shade
trees are planted singly and in the
open, thus furnishing favorable condi
tions for attack
Young borers can be killed readily
by the use of an arsenical spray.
Spraying will be necessary only every
two or three years unless badly in
fested tr?es nearby are not treated.
As a rule, spraying will not be need
ed after trees reach six inches in
diameter. Trees of that size are usual
ly Immune from attack, but should be
Locusts make such desirable shade
trees that they should not be neglect
ed and allowed to become injured or
destroyed by borers. The increasing
value of black or yellow locust for
many purposes makes it a profitable
tree to grow commercially and em
phasizes the imporfance of protecting
it from /.he borer.

CO-OPERATION IS GREAT HELP
' ' - *
Faith In Possibilities of Organization
Is Essential ? Must Be Expressed
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
While popular faith among farmers
in co-operation as a means of Improv
ing marketing methods has b.eeft
strong In recent years and has brought
about the formation of a large number
of associations, the term co-operatloo
has been employed in such a way that
many people have come to believe thai
a co-operatfve organization offers a
solution for almost all difficulties en,-,
countered Ip the marketing of farm
products. A great deal may be aecom-.
plished through organized effort when
it is properly applied and correctly
employed, but too much emphasis, say
marketing specialists of the >Dnited
States department of agriculture, can
not be placed on the fact that co-oper
ation Is not automatic and is not a
solution for all ^marketing ills. Faith
in the possibilities of co-operation is
essential to its success, but this faith
