By ROBERT SCHMIDT
In the" , early Mtwenties' many
Southern nurseries were using the ad'
vertising slogan "plant a few pecan
treeB to support yourself m your oia
age. Perhaps I should have paid
heed to that advice. 1 Although the
. slogan was somewhat misleading; the
fact remains that a number of cases
have been reported in, this State
where a few pecan trees in the farm
yard have paid the taxes on the farm
In addition to the crop of nuts pro
ducted, the pecan s a beautiful tree
and is as' valuable for shade as any
of our deciduous trees. For East
ern North Carolina we recommend the
Stuart, Cape Fear, and Brake varie
ties. For the Piedmont the Stuart
is probably best and in the mountains
only northern ' varieties such as In
diana or Green River should be planted.
There is no advantage in getting
large trees. A 5 to 6 foot tree is a
desirable size and will not cost as
much as a larger one. Trees should
be set slightly deeper than they are
in the nursery and should be at least
60 feet apart so that they will not
crowd when they are full grown.
' While preparing for planting take
care that the roots of the trees do
. not dry out. ; Place them in a tub
of water or cover with wet burlap
sacks. " Fill in wound the roots with
