Mr. iScKwa^*' advice to homeoK^rs who wish to attract more birds is not to manicure the yard too neatly. Birds fbid insects under old leaves, and eat the vegetables left in the garden at the end of summer. Honeysuckle and autumn olive bushes; left untrimmed, will attract birds, since their berries provide food and the bushes are good nesthig sites. Evergreens also attract birds. v Sbicei pafehlsiitg the farm sit yeirs ago, the Sch #arzes have been uri^Uw the forest each year^ S> far« 95 of the 138 wooded acres are complete. They remove trees which are vdnd damaged, or which are crowded, under the advice of the Ulhiois Forestry Dept.

In the sprhig, he hand plants hardwood seedlings, so that the woods Will re-establish itself. On the remaining 12 acres he has started an American Tree Forest sponsored conifer forest, which hicludes Scotch, red, white and jack pines. Someday he will-selectively cut some for Christmas trees and luniber, but the basic idea is just to have a phie forest surroundhig Ids heme: Over 30,000 trees have been maChhie planted there, and 3,000 hand planted.
