The Living Fence
The passage of the For-estry Amendment during the last election, permits the legislature to exempt from taxation, land the farmer has set aside to produce timber, and fenced to protect it from grazing.
Farmers of Pocahontas County should be much interested in experiments carried on by the Soil Conservation Service nursery at Elsberry, Missouri, to find a low cost barrier to protect from woodland and wildlife areas against livestock.
Rose multiflora commonly referred to as multiflora rose shows considerable merit for such fence use. Indeed, the prospect of multiflora rose hedges as a general field divider far outweighs its potential barrier for woodland and wildlife areas…
Probably the first question asked by farmers will be whether multiflora rose will spread by suckering, layering or seeding; it does not sucker and does not propagate by layering but, like most woody plants, will layer if a branch is covered by soil for some time. Seeding regeneration does occur under favorable conditions but not to the extent of being a nuisance…
