Forester Tells p How Plants Should Be Put In Ground The recent summer-long dry spell has created much 'havoc among our treea, .shrubs, lawns am farm crops However, it brings to Die fore one principle ] for success in all plantings,' somewhaC ^developed during CCC days on, areas whei-o after-care, could . not be given, that of always- sloping the ground towards preferred' -plants or crops. In this way water.will-na- turally flow towards the plant, and .lodge there and toak In during-arid • following light showers—or-.from artillcial waterings,, ' f ._ ' 'To do this is somewhat'contrary l.o one's normal tendency unless He stops to consider. For when one brings in a plant, perhaps with a, ball of dirt attached'to the'roots; there Is more than enough soil, to 111! tho tree or plan hole lever/If this surplus be left heape'd '' -up about the plant stem umbrella-like, the flowfige of rainwater- or..ffOm sprinkling is away from the .plant. The plant will stand ,as it wei;e, in. a miniature desert. If, on the contrary, a natural saucer-shaped depression has been' made • Muring planting that leads water from surrounding terrains towards th'ei plant and holds it there, the roots will receive a double quantity of waier. This is especially important in critical dry spells. . In practice, either personally'or with help, I (Ind it very'difficult to 1 judge depth and plant at the proper levels, and to leave this "saucer depression" properly formed, u'n- ess prior to planting the surplus soil has been curried .away, ,The Linouni so carted away should be a Shovelful, or-a wheel'barrow or ..truck- load, dc'ponding'-,on-*the size of-.the plant cu'-lrcc. A'i-nearby de- .prcssion'or ;"gully can always be "found • in 1 :,which' thls- : "surplus Boll .can be deposited. The-rare exception to ; this.; rule is in -plantings on .boggy.^eround, where the levels of the plant Bite may have to be 'raised to avoid drowning—lack of soil acriatipn—among the roots. Of course there are other measures necessary for success in planting; the use: of good loam; root protection from drying- during transplanting; In difllcult Hpccies the -retention of a. firm ball of dirt held, If necessary, to the roots with burlap or a- "wooden flat" of proper size! The longest branches and tips of plants and trees should be trimmed back to where the cut is hidden by green aide shoots. This' trimming is done' to equalize eaf transpiration with the loss of fine rootlets, By the way, the. "saucer depression," as advocated for collecting and retaining water for the tree or plant, also creiitcii an area in which a ground mulch of leaves, peat or grass clippings-can be'-placed. This will lessen soil water tavaporation n summer and frost depth in wln- er. A few brunches laid'on lop will keep the loaves., from blowing about. The above measures are especially udvimible in autumn plant- it'- . -•;; • George A'i'Cromio, New Haven, Farm Forester southwestern Connecticut.
