Aug. 26—Geo Fed Trees Less Suspecroble to Severe Droughts fed trees can withstand drought conditions belter than unfertilized ones. This Is a matter of scientific record, proved In experiments by Davey tree experts, Yet many people still ellng to the discredited belief that it Is more difficult for fertilized noes lo support the extra leaves lhat feeding provides. No loss an authority than Martin L. Davey. Jr.. reports that stimulated root growth in fcitilixcd li res more than compensates for the lusher foliage. Feeding makes for more efficient root systems and these, in turn, do a better job of eMiacling nourishment and all available moisture from the soil. Davry researchers hvae lounri lhal whrn blistering heat sweeps Ihc countryside for a substantial iwriod. annually fed trees are likely to come through unscathed while unfertilized neighbors decline or succumlj [n Ihc adverse conditions. It also has been found Ihey'ic more likely to maintain luxurian green follafie. Feeding i.s no substitute for watering or rain, but It does reduce the tree's water reriuirenienls. A plant in enriched soil Is able to produce a pound of dry matter using less water than In poor soil.
