Trees green and in good shape last fall, but brown this spring, are the victims of winter damage, according to Campbell. The damage is caused by a number of factors. The extreme drouth and summer heat weakened the trees. After a dry fall, they went into the winter with a shortage of ground moisture. Lack of snow cover permitted an exceptionally deep freeze. Then unseasonally warm weather in January allowed considerable transpiration (loss of moisture from the needles). The roots were still frozen and this moisture could not be replaced. Burning of the needles resulted. A period of extremely cold weather following the warm days in January froze the moving sap and resulted in injury to the cambium layer (new growth) on limbs and twigs. There is no remedy or control against such damage, Campbell says. If this summer is a dry one. a good watering program should be adopted for highly prized evergreens. Trees should be especially well watered just before freeze-up this fall. At that time they should be given a heavy mulch of hay, straw or leaves. Keep the mulch back six to 12 inches from the tree trunk and extend it out three or four feet. On large trees, it should extend out the length of the branches. It is advisable to mulch young trees during the summer, also Campbell says.

Your Jeweler Evergreen Browning Is Result Of Winter Widespread winter damage to evergreens has occurred throughout Iowa this year, with the heaviest injury being felt in the northern half of the state, especially in northwest part. There has been considerable damage in Postville. Scotch pine, juniper, white cedar and white pine seem to have suffered the most, according to reports received by Iowa State College extension forester R. B. Campbell, Colorado spruce, Black Hills spruce and Austrian pine were the least damaged, observations indicate. The winter damage has resulted in the browning of the needles and the dying of branches. In some instances the entire tree has been killed. Many trees, although they appear quite brown now, will recover, Campbell thtinks. This browning of the trees is not warehouse blazes caused $1,350,427 in damages and 49 factory Area— $834,145. Governor Robert D. Blue's statement: "The seriousness of the annual fire loss in the State of Iowa is cause for serious concern, and an indication that an organized attempt must be made to reduce this annual toll. The fact that there are more lives lost in unwarranted fires in Iowa than are due to the combined total of Polio, Scarlet Fever, Measles, Diptheria and Whooping Cough, when combined with the fact that the majority of fires are preventable, makes it of primary importance that this Governor's Conference on Fire Prevention consider the problem in oil its phases and arrive at a concrete program of betterment."

Deaths caused by fires totaled 118 in 1947 and in each of the five pre- ceeding exceeded 100. In 1942 Iowa lost 107 people by fire: 152 in 1943; 124 in 1944; 115 in 1945 and 119 in 1946. Fire deaths may be compared with certain disease deaths as in 1946 syphilis caused 131 deaths in the State, and these five common diseases combined caused 116 deaths; scarlet fever with nine deaths, whooping cough 16, dip­ theria 16, measles 22 and polio 53. Burns and conflagrations cause about one-fifth as many deaths as motor vehicle accidents and constitute 6.4% of all accidental deaths. Iowa property loss totaled $8,297,073 in 1947 and $6,349,980 in 1946. The preceding six years averaged an annual loss of $4,000,000. In 1947 there were 4.032 fires in Iowa or 59 more than the previous year and of the 118 persons killed by fires last year, 85 were adults and the remaining 33—children under 15 years of age. December of 1947 was the most dangerous month of the year with $1,175,939 damages.
