Prunings As Fertilizer
Is orchard and vineyard brush worth enough as a fertilizer to pay for
cutting or breaking and putting back on the land?
We should say not. It takes too much labor to put it in any form to
promote decay, and is even then too indestructible. It is also possible
that its decay may induce root rot of trees. We should burn the stuff
and spread the ashes. Vineyard prunings are more promising because more
easily and quickly reduced by decay. Vinecane-hashers have been proposed
from time to time, but we do not know anyone who long used them.
