Reed now has cut his orchard down to 15 acres, mainly with Stewart trees, and he has plans of eliminating this, too, since the trees seem to bear only every other year, and even with premium prices he has been unable to produce much profit from the orchard. He says he can ecme eut better moneywlse by using the land for other crops. Rccd says his experience in trying to grow pecans for profit has been that too much of the crop, when there is one, is lost to "stealage." i "Too many people seem to I think that it is no crime or sin to help themselves to pecan? from trees they don't own," he explained. "I've just had enough of it, so I'm going to bulldoze down the rest of my trees and use the ground for some other crop."
