"IT'S A BARGAIN CONSUMER'S' GA Plants and Pesfe Timely Discussion by the State Zoologist of Pennsylvania Distance for Planting Apple and tlio l'e of Fillers Trees Prof. H. A. Surface, State Zoolo gist, received from the most promt nent fruit grower In Allegheny cpun ty an inquiry concerning the planting of apple treos and the cutting back of peach trees injured by freezing. The reply was as follows: "I would not plant my apple trees as close as thirty feet apart, especi ally for varieties such as Stayman Wlnosap and York Imperial. They are rank growers and will take at least thirty five feet, and If I were doing It I would plant them, from thirty six to forty feet, or at least forty feet one way by thirty six the other. I am now planting forty by forty. Of course, between the trees set permanently at this distance I am usingr fillers, which may be young bearing varieties of apples, such as Grimes Golden and Jonathan, or you can uso dwarf pears, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, currants, peaches, plums or quinces. "I have decided that there Is no special objection to peaches as fillers In comparison with the valuable and early returns to be so obtained. I would much rather do It this way than to set my apple trees thirty feet apart, and not have fillers between them. Twenty year? from now you will worry about this thirty foot bus iness, If your land Is such as will grow trees to a large and, as I recall It from personal observation, this Is the case in your soil. "It will be best by all means to cut back very severely the peach trees that are partially winter killed There will be a growth started at th top, but the tree will be brittle an break easily a year from this coming summer with its load of fruit then Cut them back well now, leaving some live buds to push out growth until the dormant or adventitious buds get started. mere win do practically no peaches In this region this year, but other fruits are in good conditions as you say they are there." AEIUAL CKOWX GALL Knots on Brandies of Fruit Trees Since It has been learned that Crown Gall Is so Injurious to trees a to stunt their growth, attention has been given to the knots often found on the branches of trees, and it i found that they are duo to a similar fungus if not the same. A correspondent in Allentown wrote to Harrlsburg, and asked State Zoologist Surface if he could get rid of it by merely cutting off the knots, The reply contains timely Informa tion, and Is as follows: It is almost Impossible to treat the gall knot by cutting off the knots as they will form again. It is practi cany necessary to cut out the limbs that have it. "Where it does not en tirely encircle the limb it is not so serious as to need to be cut out. It can remain, and the limb will still be fruitful, but will not grow vigorous ly. There Is one point about this that Is quite certain, and that is, that urc wiui suin Knots or galls on either roots or branches should not be used for grafting or propagation purposes. Also, the implements used in cutting such galls should not used for cutting other branches with out sterilizing." Cutting Rack Frozen Teach Trees One of the most experienced orch araisis and nurserymen in Pennsyl vania wroie to Prof. H. A. Surface. of asking what should be done with peach trees of which he sent a sample of wood. They were so bodly frozen that they were brown wnen freshly cut. Thousands of peach growers this year need the in formation which was given, and which was as follows ine wood is too badly frozen to recover unless it is cut back well. I should cut at least two thirds of the top out of such a tree, but I should not cut it so that it is cut to mere stubs without buds. I mean to say, that I would leave brenches with their full hud length, rather than dehorning all of them to stubs. Leave some leaf buds on your trees to start the sap going. When you cut out a tall branch make the cut Just above a living side branch upon which good strong leaf buds are to be found. "The strongest leaf buds of your peach tree will start and grow, lust as they would develop if the twigs were cut off and placed in water, but they are liable to die durlng'the sum mer, because the cambium la ver of the twigs, which is the vital means of connection between bud and root, is killed by this freezing. The important point to bear in mind in pruning a frozen tree is. that it will not stand topping back to stubs as severely as in pruning for bad scale infestation. "As a fruit grower, you will be interested in knowing that there may possibly be a two per cent, peach crop this year in this region, but I think not more than that." Transplanting Seedling Tear Trees A correspondent in Eastern Pennsylvania wrote to State Zoologist Surface, of Harrisburg, asking about transplanting some seedling pear trees, and making them over into good trees. The reply vas very practical although brief. It is as follows "It is quite possible to transplant them, and then you will have to graft them. It would be best to let them grow a year and then graft them after they are well started this season. The thorns indicate a certainty of theirbelng natural seedlings or wild pears rather than improved varieties, Among the varieties that I would recommend you to use for grafting are the Bartlett, Seckel, Sheldon, Bosc and Winter Nells."
