The Production of Certified Holly in Maryland
Abstract:Holly has been used for Christmas decorations since early Christian times. Its use has a deep significance and there is no good reason why its use should not long continue. However, the methods of collecting native holly have been highly destructive and in many sections of the country the holly has been almost exterminated. The author describes the progress made in Maryland to promote the use of "certified holly" which has been collected in accordance with methods designed to conserve and perpetuate the natural supplies of this important tree.
