METHOD OF FREEING APPLE TREES FROM MOSS.
THIS method consists in daubing over
the trunk, and all the large branches
of the tree, when the sap begins to rise,
with a large brush dipped in whiting made
of lime, pretty thick; the moss, and all
the rotten bark will soon after drop off,
and be replaced by a new bark entirely
