Excerpt from Transactions of the Maine State Pomological Society: For the Year 1907

It might not seem necessary to mention the past winter in connection with fruit growing were it not for the fact that the winter is blamed by many for the injury suffered by our orchards. So far as your Secretary is concerned he does not "blame it all on the weather," while the injury is more serious than most of our fruit growers realize, there are other conditions that should be recognized. The Baldwin and Ben Davis suffered the most. Those varieties are both free bearers, and the growers look upon the tree hanging full of beautiful fruit and rejoice over the magnificent crop of fruit promised. I do not know of a fruit grower in Maine who has to any great extent felt it necessary to relieve the trees of the heavy burdens they were bearing. In one case the present season a prominent grower told me he had used over 1,500 stakes to prevent the trees from breaking down. In a canvass covering a large number of orchards this fall a conspicuous fact appears: the dead and injured trees are almost without exception trees that bore heavily the year before. In other words the trees have been so weakened by overbearing that they have not had.the power to resist the cold. Many trees that have borne heavily this year I found seriously injured, and it will be strange if there are not many more dead trees next spring than the last. The Secretary suggests whether it would not be wiser to pick off some fruit and burn up the stakes. The extent of this injury was shown by speakers at our meeting, who have been investigating orchard conditions in the State.
