Shndo Treeo Are Suffering.
Shade trees In Norfolk are suffering
badly for the want of moisture. Sat
urday night's rain has not rollovcd the
.situation and those interested in the
preservation of the shade tree find the
soil six feet eleiwn very dry. The re
cent rain will not help the shade trees
and those who are fond of tholr trees
will do well to put on the water im
mediately , thus assuring themselves of
live shade trees next spring , when it
Is predicted the trees not receiving
the required amount of moisture now ,
will die Immediately after they have
budded out. It is the "winter kill , "
says one Norfolk man Interested In
shade trees , that the trees will die
The trees In this vicinity for sev
eral months past have been suffering.
The leaves have been falling off and
In many cases the leaves on the trees
have been curling up , n sign which in
dicates that the tree is suffering foi
want of water. At the state hospital
these signs have become very notice
able and those In charge of Prospect
Hill and other cemeteries have ordered
the gardeners to glvo their entire at
tention to the trees.
"It takes a life time , " says L. Ses
sions , ono of those interested in the.
tree preservation , "to grow a shade
tree , while It takes but ono or two sea
sons to grow a good lawn. The grass
will dry up but after a rain it usually
comes up. The shade tree must be
taken care of. I am putting in much
of my time watering my trees at my
home. It would bo well to call the at
tention of the public to the fact that
elm , apple and other trees are already
suffering. It takes llttlo time each
evening to water these trees. "
