Storm First Real
Snvw Os season
The first real snow of the
son hit Western North Carolina
Friday right and Saturday, clos
ing schools and making travel by
automobile to Impassible on many
secondary roads. These conditions
were just what the younger set
had been waiting for. Last win
ters sleds were dragged out and
there was plenty of travel by sled
on the side-roads. r
The snow ran from 6 to 9 in
ches, but is almost gone now as
the weather has been fairly warm
and sunny for most of this week.
Schools opened today for the
first time this week, and the sleds
have been put away again for the
Tree Planting j
Office Manager James Randolph
of the Agricultural Stabilization
and Conservation Service said
today. "Tree planting in Yancey
County last, year was 56,590 seed
lings, bringing the total to date
to 3,100,867 seedlings planted on
2,960 acres in the county. >
“This tree planting means a
great deal to the county,’’ added
Randolph. Foresters estimate the
average long-term yield of a pine
plantation is sl6 per acre per
year. Thus, the 2,900 acres plant
ed are earning the landowners
nearly $45,000 per year in growth.
And Christmas tree plantings can
earn even more than sls per acre
4‘However,” Randolph said,
“while our county tree planting
record is a good one, there still
remains about 10,000 more acres
of idle, open land thalt could be
planted to trees. This could mean
.an additional $150,000 per year in
wood growth to the landowners
of the county.
“If you have open, idle land and
want to find out more about tree
planting, contact your county
ranger. 801 l Conservation Service
