THE HOOD RIVER NEWS, WEDNESDAY. AUGUST 1G, 1911
"Probably the most important lesson the orchardists of the Northwest have yet to learn is that
cheap nursery trees are an exceedingly dangerous foundation on which to start an orchard -that a
few cents economy on such trees at the start is many dollars' loss in the long run."
Thus spoke one of America's greatest horticulturists on a recent visit to the Northwest. ' It is
a warning that is well merited, for one can visit scarcely any of the newer fruit sections without
being appalled by the number of weak, sickly, undersized young trees that stand as incontroverti
ble proof of his warning.
Any man who will plant anything but the strongest, most vigorous, healthiest trees -of
known ancestry trees whose breeding for generations past insure prolific bearing and disease re
sisting qualities is bequeathing a legacy of trouble to posterity. The first cost of a fruit tree is an
insignificant cost, but the quality and pedigree of that tree is a powerful, perpetual factor to your
success or those after you.
All of the nursery trees apple stocks of the Hood River Standard Nursery Co. have
three-year-old root systems, with one-year straight tops -big, strong, healthy, vigorous trees that
will grow when properly planted, and which will bear from one to three years earlier than the so
called "yearling" tree promiscuously peddled about, and they will cost you little, if any, more. They
are all propagated from the highest earning and best trees of the world famous Hood River Valley-trees
whose ancestry and past performances is a matter of careful record. They are in every
sense a thoroughbred, pedigreed apple tree.
For the season of 1911-12 we can offer a limited amount of extra size apple only. Write for
catalog and price list.
