Growing Christmas Trees in the South (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Growing Christmas Trees in the South Your choice of a site can decide the success or failure of a Christmas tree operation. Some major qualities of good and poor sites are discussed below. Fertility. - Some species, such as the firs, are more demanding. They require more moisture and more fertile sites than most pines. Trees on sites that are too fertile may require more frequent pruning and shearing. Poor sites mean longer rotation (the time it takes a seedling to reach a marketable size and to replant cutover sites) and higher fertilizer costs or, in some cases, outright failures. Avoid deep, droughty sands and wet poorly drained soils. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
