Research For Better Christmas Trees
A dynamic research program is essential to a flourishing Christmas tree industry. There should be a constant search for better tree varieties, improved hybrids, greater understanding of the relation between tree growth and site, more practical cultural techniques for growing high-quality trees, and improved marketing procedures. If this is not done, the traditional evergreen Christmas tree may be replaced by a synthetic substitute.
