Nearly every fruit grower has his

prune to Bhapo tho tree. If heavy
pruning Is douo It can bo accom-
plished In tho early spring or dor-

tho tree. Summer and winter prun-

At this tlmo tho trees have stopped

Summer pruning should not remove

BEST CROPS IN AN ORCHARD

Most formers grow some crops be-

sight to seo a young orchard planted
and kept for any tlmo within tho sod.
