'00l,e/a9 "" Chris mas Tree Buyer Pur,:h0000ses December 19, Pays Joe Buhaly isn't a "peeping prove on nature also has let to Tom" and he isn't any relation to Christmas tree plantations, and, Santa Claus but he can come pret- ty close to describing the Christ- mas tree you have in mind for your living room this holiday sea- Son. Buhaly is the Washington State University Extension Forestry Specialist based at Puyallup. What he knows about your Christmas tree comes from field experience and statistics, and it all adds up to trees with better color, more branches, and longer life. Harold Van De Riet. County Extension Agent. Shelton, passing along this information from Buhaly, says WashihgTon residehts will buy ,a Douglas fir tree six feet high on the evening of Dec. 19 and pay $3 for it. Are you :that average tree shopper fauhidned by statistics?i' your 196"3 tree appears bet- ter than many of those in the don't necessarily chalk it up to shrewd buying judgment. This may be true. but. on' the other hand. it ]nay be because of better growing conditions, more field attention to fertilizing the trees, and a general urge among produ- cers to market a better product. Even though it is a once-a-year shot. Christmas tree producers, as a whole, are going at their busi- ness in a scientific manner. THEY'VE learned from Wash- ington State University Extension A, gents, for instance, that fertili- zation is vital to their crop in some /areas. As little as three cents worth of nitrogen fertilizer on Mason and Kitsap county trees has increased the retail value of the trees from 25 cents to 75 cents each. In other areas test trees show absolutely no difference re- gardless of fertilization efforts. Thurston County has trees typi- cal of this. Such research on ways to im- for the first time this year, some of these trees are on the market. They were seedlings just five years ago whereas that tree from natural forests probably has need- ed twice as much time to reach the same height. Proud Washington residents might be a little disappointed to learn that' Scotch pine, grown in the northeastern part of the Uni- ted States, accounts for 21 per cent of the national Christmas tree market but Douglas fir runs a close second at 20 per cent. 'Washington produces more than one-third of all this Douglas fir and most of it comes from the four counties of Mason, Kitsap, Pierce and Thurston. The Washingto Christmas tree industry this year, according to Buhaly, will amount to an $8 mil lion retail business with 50 per cent of the trees going to Califor- nia markets. But whether your tree is a Douglas fir six feet tall or a Lodgepole pine two feet tall one thing is certain: Christmas isn't the same without it.
