"The evergreen or coniferous trees have a resinous sap, to say nothing of any other and minor peculiarities in which they differ from the broad-leaved or deciduous trees. If this resinous sap is once allowed to be checked in its flow or hardened by the exposure of the tree-roots to the drying influence of the sun and wind, the circulation of the vital fluid is stopped forever. No application of water, though in floods, will start the flow again . . . we have seen trees brought to be planted, and by those who knew something about trees, brought apparently in good condition, and then laid upon the ground to be exposed to the sun or wind while the holes were being dug for their reception; and this exposure was just long enough for them to be death-struck and the holes to be their graves. . . ." --N. H. EGLESTON
