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.
