Condensation For Irrigation

If a circular funnel of waterproofed building paper, or some better

cheap device, were fastened about the base of the tree in such a manner

as to catch and concentrate most of the drippings from the leaves, and

that water made to run down through a tube leading a suitable depth into

the earth, it seems to me that the number of foggy nights that occur in

many localities during the season might thus supply ample water for a

tree's needs.

The probability is that water would not be secured in sufficient

quantities to serve any notable irrigation purposes, or if the fogs were

so thick as to yield water enough, the sunshine would be too scant for

the success of the plant. Put your idea to the test and see how much

water you could get from a tree of definite leaf area, which could be

readily estimated.
