The Association sets up certain standards which the own- er must achieve. Upon the achievement of these standarads a certificate is granted and the owner becomes a member. The latest tree farm in the Snohomish S o i 1 Conservation District is that of J. P. Mathews;i !Joe to his friends. His tree farm is located half way between Ed- ecomb and Sisco Heights.

The farming slump follow- ing World War One was not easy on the groce~'y business in Wor- ley, Idaho. In 1928 Joe saw a newspaper advertisement of lawyer in Arlington, Washington. In a short time he acquired the Arlington Law business, closed out his Idaho interests and mov- ed to Washington. In 1944 Mathews purchased the one hundred and sixty acre tract described above. Being an active worker in the American Legion he was able to contribute sub- stantially to the Legion Mem- orial Forest program. This also brought him active c o n t a c t with the Soil Conservation Serv- ice and the IndUstrial Forestry Association. Joe decided that was the program for him. Mathews worked out a plan with Soil Conservation Service assistance. To begin with, the one hundred sixty acres was not an ideal piece for tree farming. Some areas were grown up to alder brush of no value, some had alder of value, if thinned. Joe was lucky inasmuch ah he had several acres of a good Douglas fir stand and some scattered larg- er Douglas fir trees to act as seed trees He also had a few acres of merchantable alder. On the debit side were not only the areas of alder brush but the fact that the commercial alder market was un- certain. About thirty acres of his land was unsuited to the growing of Douglas Fir. Joe's plan called for pruning and thinning of the Douglas fir. Elimination of the brushy alder and planting of Douglas fir. Elimination of brushy alder and planting of Cedar and Hemlock Thinning of Alder to speed the maturity of remaining Alder and allowing small conifer trees to grow. There were also many smaller problems too numerous to mention. Joe set to work with a will, spare time was utilized in gird- ling Alder for thinning. In some places, where young Fir trees were growing, he cut the sur- rounding Alder to give the young Firs sunlight. He contracted with his son-in-law for the removal of Alder "plug poles." That gives Joe a little stumpage, but most important is the thinning of the Alder in the "plug pole" oper- ation. When the Alder market seems strong, commercial Alder will be cut in blocks, then land burned, and Fir established by both planting and seeding. Prun- ing of the Douglas Fir has also been going ahead steadily. Application was made for cer- tification as a West Coast Tree Farm. At the last meeting of the Board of the Industrial Forestry Association the application was given favorable consideration Mathews, of course, will likely receive interest on his invest- merit from stumpage sales every year. The really big "pay off" will come in about twenty-five years. Joe was "kidded" about ac- cumulating a legacy for his grandchildren, he said, "What do you mean, my grandchildren I expect to sell those little Fir trees myself. After all, I'll only be eighty seven years old." o SILVANA BUSY BAKERS The Silvana Busy Bakers held their regular meeting on Oct. 31, at the home of Delores Brekhus.
