"No, we would not think of planting a tree without using dynamite.”—­

Extract from a letter received from Edwards & Patterson, Milledgeville, Ga., who are amongst Georgia’s best known pecan growers.

[Illustration:  Pecan nut]

Edwards & Patterson’s pecans, actual size, sent to us as fair average samples of nuts grown on unblasted and blasted trees.  The pecan at the top was grown on a tree in unblasted soil,—­at the bottom is the pecan grown where the soil was blasted.

[Illustration:  Pecan nut]

Blasting with RED CROSS EXPLOSIVES shatters the compact soil, extends the feeding area of roots and increases the water-holding capacity of the ground.

Tree-planting in blasted ground is “life insurance” for all kinds of fruit and nut trees.  Plant your pecans in blasted ground, and stop first-year losses.

Write for HANDBOOK OF EXPLOSIVES telling about tree-planting and other ways of using RED CROSS EXPLOSIVES.
