Christmas free supplies good; prices higher EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — If you're already thinking " of Christmas, you'd better plan on spending 8 to 10 per cent more than last year for your holiday tree. But Melvin Koelling, a forestry professor at Michigan State University, says despite higher costs, there should be no shortage of trees. Michigan, the nation's ieading grower of cultivated trees, should produce about four million Christmas trees again this year. The other top producers are the Pacific Northwest and Pen- syivania, Koelling said. He said most trees in Michigan will cost from $1 to $1.50 per linear foot, with Douglas firs most expensive. Since the state exports 80 per cent of its trees to other parts of the country, prices will be higher elsewhere, he added. About 90 per cent of Michigan's crop will be scotch pines, with another 6 per cent split between Douglas firs and white spruces. Almost 75 per cent of the scotch pines already have been cut because of good weather, Koelling said. Firs and spruces won't be cut until the first two weeks of December, he said. He reported the early scotch pine harvest is just one indication that "the market appears particularly strong this year, and I would suspect that reflects an improvement in the economy." Koelling said this year's crop is about the same as last year's, although yields per acre are slightly lower because of a dry spring. Artificial trees, which some experts once predicted would erase the market for natural ones, now hold about one-third of the market. Bui Koelltng said that share is merely holding steady. He noted the energy crisis hurt artificial tre« since mosl are made from petroleum products and their cost has risen more sharply than those of natural trees. The biggest change Koelling has seen in Michigan Christmas trte buying patterns is the increase in so-called choose-and-cut operations In those, the buyer goes out in the field to select and cut his own tree. He described the operations as "part of the nostalgic trend of the past few years." "We're going to s<!<! an even larger share of our trees for Michigan that will be produced by choose- and-cut operations," he predicted . Incorrect addresses cause problems at VA evin One out of every five among the 214 million Americans changes his address by moving each year, and at least half of these moves are potential problems for the Veterans Administration, A. A. Hunter, VA Regional Director, observed. Almost half these people are veterans,their dependent* or their survivor's, a<nf the continuing migration can produce massive headfcbes at Veterans Administration records centers, Hunter sajd. To avoid delays in benefits checks and contusion i« oinw veteraiu. records, VA urges all veterans or others entitled to VA bwefits to promptly ootily it vi auy «teW4i<» wi address Even U a veteran is oat presently receiving benefits, Hunter pointed out that it will save time and eliminate possible error should they be sought in the future if the veteran's records always reflect his correct address. With files on more than 29 million living veterans, duplications of thousands of names are common ajid an uicuu*sct dUuress only serves to increase the possibility of error or delay in processing claims, Hunter said. There are 703,950 veterans in the ninety counties of the Houston Regional Office. In the case of veterans currently receiving benefits, the new address and the date of the move should be provided VA as far In advance at possible, Hunter said.
