Robert Wray has updated this edition to include the latest techniques and tools for harvesting trees, new methods of transport, the most recent data on herbicides, and advice on how to run a Christmas-tree business today. A perennial bestseller, this illustrated guide covers selecting land, choosing species, planting, harvesting, and managing a plantation. Wray provides guidance for choosing species suitable for the grower\'s situation, where and how to get planting stock, and how to care for it. The planting process is described in detail, including both hand and machine methods. The book presents useful techniques for protecting the growing trees from weeds, animals, fire, insects, and disease, and offers a full description of shearing or shaping trees to improve their form and density keys to a successful crop. As the grower s job is not done until the trees are sold, issues of grading, harvesting, advertising, and marketing are examined. A chapter on finances deals with costs, profits, and taxes. From novice to experienced grower, there is something in this book for everyone.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:description<\/a> \"A growing business -- Selecting land -- Species to grow -- Where to get trees -- Choosing the planting stock -- Preparing the ground -- When to plant trees -- Care and handling of planting stock -- Planning and managing the plantation -- Spacing of trees -- The planting job -- Keeping plantations clean -- Shearing -- Protecting the plantation -- Grading Christmas trees -- Harvesting -- Going to market -- Other products of the plantation -- Profits--and taxes.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/131239469<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:name<\/a> \"Christmas trees for pleasure and profit<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:productID<\/a> \"212893545<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/212893545#PublicationEvent\/new_brunswick_n_j_rutgers_university_press_2009<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/131239469#Agent\/rutgers_university_press<\/a>> ; # Rutgers University Press<\/span>\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/catdir.loc.gov\/catdir\/toc\/ecip0812\/2008007765.html<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780813544175<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780813544168<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0umbel:isLike<\/a> <http:\/\/bnb.data.bl.uk\/id\/resource\/GBA8D9980<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0wdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/212893545<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.<\/div>
