TIME TO PEEL
PINE FENCE POSTS
With the fair weather and the rain
of recent weeks, bringing on Me
transition of growing plants to the
"greening up" stage, our field and
forest fire danger is slowly sub-
siding. The abundance of tall, dead
grass still standing over the new
spring growth continues to present
considerable hazard from a wild-
fire standpoint. The appearance of
spring "green" should not suggest
less care and caution where clean-
up burning is planned.
Now is an excellent time to cut
and peel pine fence posts prepara-
tory to treating them with penta-! Livesay was

Wade Neely of Troup and Zack
Taylor of New Summerfield have
recently top dressed Kentucky 31
fescue with nitrogen fertilizer. Both
men hope to harvest seed from their
fescue this spring. Interest in this
new winter growing grass is in-
creasing in this Soil Conservation
District. Mr. Neely and Taylor are
dairymen. They plan to increase
their acreage planted to Kentucky 31
iescue this fall.
T. D. Pearman of Alto is planning
to seed weeping love grass on deep
sandy soil on his farm. Weeping love
grass is one of the few forage plants
found that will grow on our deep
sandy land. It is easy to establish and
requires very little fertilize. Two
pounds of seed broadcast or drilled,
or one pound in three-foot rows is
enough for a good stand. Love grass
should be planted the last of April
or the first of May.

abundance of sap allowing the bark
to slip quite easily.
This is the season that presents
an answer to the farmer that happens
to have two particular questions con-
fronting him—"How can i' afford the
fencing I need?" and, "How can I
get a profitable thinning out of the
thick stand of young native pines?"
By utilizing such material for posts
a thinning can be made profitable,
even though the trees are too small
for commercial products such as
pulpwood, poles or sawlogs. In some
areas pine fence posts themselves
have become a commercial product,
