Q.-A party whot claitits to ',e ait ex- 
perienled  t ree planter, "though I 
dloubt it," says, evtrg.-etts and de- 
'itliotus treci taken from  attive place 
it low land will not succeed on high 
laudl. What is yttur opinion Atout 
this? I wish to ,tove t'te;s and cedars 
from such a place if advisable. 
  Is there iTnything in marking the 
,outh side of a treeo and replanting 
in samne direction? 
                         W. 1'. R). 
  The tree planter is in part right 
ilt his statements. Trees moved from 
low to high land will certainly stuffer 
check. The setback may last two 
,r three years but with good care the 
Irees will eventually make good sp'e- 
tuens. It is not all due to thie soil, 
te'ause trees from the wild never t!, 
well as nursery grown stock. The 
,ut system   in tite former is inefli- 
ient and the change of environment 
I much more severe. The nursery 
.iown trees have usually been trani- 
hitnted and always cultivated which 
'roduces a compact root system. 
  It must not be understood that 
  tees can never le moved   success- 
  Illy from the wilh but if yo<u are in 
  hurry for results would advise you 
1 secure nursery grown stock. 
  Marking the south side of a tree 
;tid  planting  in  same   direction 
tiakee very little difference. Some- 
times the trunks of trece taken from 
a shaded locality may suffer a little 
from reversing but this can be over-

strips of wood, paper or any other
