Research And Th two major needs of the Christmas Tree Industry are the need to produce quality trees and for research into the problems o growing trees, Shclton Clmmber of Commerce members were told last Thursday night. Speaker for the program at the monthly lnemberslfip meeting was Herber'L Plumb, a retired Forest Service employee and now oper- ator of a tree farm near Black Ltmb"- said the outlook for ual- ity Christmas trees 'as excqlent but that the grower was going Lo have to pay more attention to put- ling top quality trees on the mar- ket. He said hdicaions to him from merchants l]ad been that the arti- ficial Christmas trees were de- clining. HE ADVOCATED a grading system for trees, commenting that most other crops v, rel,e graded so that if cnll products were put on the market, they were labled so the buyer knew what he was get- Ling. A major need of the industry is for research in tbe problems el growing Christmas trees. Phmlb said. The Forest, Service conducts re- seareh, he said. but it is almost entirely in the area of timber pro- duction. There is research being carried on in the cat and mid-west, but it is not ahvays applicable here. He said one step which might help to get some ChrisLmas tree research was the recent appoint- ment of Lee Wells of the Hofert Christmas Tree Company to the research advisory committee of the Forest Service, HE SAID ONE WAY in which the Chanlber e(mld hch) wqs to support efforls to get the Forest Service and the Department at Natural RoSOllrees to get research projects started. Citing an exalnt)le of the need for resear(;h he said he had a problem with sometlfing defoliat- ing some of his trees, and that he had been told it was : fungus while another grower with the same probh, m was told it was caused by an insect. ausl to bc snre. he said, he had sprayed with both an insecticide and a funoicidc, but that this was expensive, and if there had been research available, he could have found out what the trouble \\;vas and would have had to have used only one spray. Oscar Levm was program chairman and introduced the speaker. to reduce deaths among women from this dreaded disease.
