The occasion was Arbor Day, proclaimed as such by Governor 'Ian Turner. The planting: of two. or more trees was made an eligibility requirement for the 4-H clubs this year, according to L T. Bode, extension forester at Iowa State college. Citizens "with an eye for beauty, however, have made something of the day and sought for information on the subject of trees and shrubbery. Among the trees which are adapted to Iowa are arbor vitae, Norway spruce, white pine, white oak, pin oak, red oak, paper birch, Norway maple, sugar maple, American elm sycamore, hackberry and white ash. Roots of trees obtained for planting should not be allowed to dry out. This is especially true of evergreens. Trees should be planted in well worked, fertilized soil. Before planting the ends of all broken or mutilated roots should be cut off. Care should be taken after the tree Is planted that it has plenty of moisture.
