Researchers there have baseline knowledge of the needle-retention charac- teristics of each tree in these orchards. "We're going to be exposing branches to different concentrations of ethylene for a 24-hour period," Chastagner said. "Then the branches will be moved to a post-harvest display room where we do needle- loss testing. We also have a set of branches only ex- posed to air, as a control." A companion ethylene study involves exposing branches to different levels of the gas over a simu- lated seven-day storage period. Those branches will also be displayed and measured for needle loss. Tree branches will be held in a post-harvest display room after they've been exposed to ethylene gas. Re- searchers will measure needle loss on each branch to see effects of the gas. Chastagner and his team are collaborating with U.S. Department of Agriculture scientist James Mattheis in Wenatchee, who has years of experience working with ethylene and apple storage. Chastag- ner said the research partnership makes this project possible. "It's a good marriage of people who have exten- sive expertise in their own areas," he said. Much of the $90,000 grant ($62,666) comes from the Washington State Department of Agriculture, with the rest coming from WSU. One last comment on tree care: Research has shown that putting additives in the water does not impact needle loss or tree freshness in any way. So just go with plain water and keep it full!
