yet there is alsa a wheel within a
Wheel. I believe as a rule less pains is
taksn in taking op and re-rettina hrire
trees than small ones. Generally no
more length of roots are left on the old
ones Ibsn on the young ones, and never
tbe length in proportion to age. Tbu,
when two or thrse years growth cf ths
best (-art of the roots are left in tbe
ground they have to be regained before
tho bottom is sgain equal to tbat above
Tbe live working fiber roots are mostly
on the email brace roots and rootlets,
and as they are the main feeders tbe
tree bas to wait until tbe roots first
grow, and then tbe fiber roots form on
tbem before tbe tree is sgain in full
growing order. Then as the tree is us
ually re set with tbs large stabs of roots
in tbeir mangled condition without tbe
mangled ends being cut off with a smooth
slant with a shsrp knife so tbe new roots
will start ont from the ends, (ss tbey
never start from mangled ends) the tree
is retarded from one to three years in
coming into full bearing. Also more or
less time is lost in the tap root being cut
While tbe limited amount of ground
occupied by tbe sborteoed roots mat
produce moist ore and olbei constituent
neceararr for the growth of the wood.
Yet the roots have ti reach out far
enough to take up a sufficient amount ol
ibe chemical constituents of the fruit to
enable tbe tree to hear. Some trpee sre
s year or two h- hind other of tb same
age set side by s:dn at th- name lime,
only bearing one, two, or ball a doz-n,
and if a fcw more sets so .tie of them will
not mature. There is, nt couree, a cauee
and if ibe 'r.ie birtory uf the tree irom
the nursery np was knoan. tue fau.t
would he .found in tbe above.
In young trees tbe roots are naually
ahead of tbe top, but ia older one-i the
reverse is the role, hence the nec-!d.ty
of taking extra pains in taking up aud
re setting old treee.
