tho pnrt of tho trco Immediately
abovo tho snow lino, taking In tho
uppor part of tho trunk and the

tiro portion of tho fruit spur mny ho
affected. Combined with tills bark
and wood Injury ninny buds nro af
fected, especially on tho hwcoI cher
ries and pears.
Tho chief cause of tho Injury,
which Is usually found to extend en
tirely nround tho troc, Is tho combin
ation of low temporaturo, coupled
with tho prosonco of considerable
sap In (ho lower par( of (ho (reo a(
least. Anodicr contributing factor
which was very serious wan tho heat
gonoratcd on tho south and south
west sides of tlio trees by tho sun's
reflection on tho snow. This caused
n drying out of that portion of tho
bark and an Injury much worso In
