Since evergreen trees are densely branched and retain their foliage in winter they provide year-round protection. Evergreens should be used exclusively in windbreaks made up of only one or two rows of trees. For maximum protection it is important to select a tree that retains its branches to the ground line. Pine trees such as the Ponderosa, Austrian, and Af- ghanistan pines all have a tendency to shed lower branches which al- lows the wind to pass freely under- neath. Other evergreens, par- ticularly Arizona Cypress, Eastern Redcedar, and Rocky Mountain Juniper maintain their lower branches and thus provide better protection. All three of these dense evergreens grow well in our area. They are all drought and heat For Sale At The Grocery Store HIP- O OSTRICH RANCH Bob & Vera Andls RR 1 Box 45 PK 806-874.2050 Clarendon, "IX 79226 Discover the Latest Dobson Difference - Toll-Free Calling to Cellular Numbers! tolerant and will survive our winters. Of these three, Arizona Cypress will grow to be the largest in our area reaching up to 50 feet in height. The other two will reach up to 35 feet high. Arizona Cypress also maintains its density best as it ages. The Arizona Cypress does best on deep soils while the Red- cedar and the Rocky Mtm Juniper grow well on poor sites. All three axe well adapted to conditions here and generally available, however, the Arizona Cypress is usually in short supply. The Texas Forest Ser- vice usually sells out before the SCS can place an order, therefore, if you are interested in placing an order for evergreen trees especially the Arizona Cypress, please earl 874- 3576 or come by the SCS office at the corner of 4th and Sully as soon as possible.
