The beautiful Long Island estate of Capt. J. R. De Lamar. The treat ment of the trees was entrusted to the proved skill of Davey Tree Surgeons Among prominent Davey clients are: HON. TRUMAN H. NEWBERRY PHILIP D. ARMOUR FOSTER F. DRYDEN T. DE WITT CUYLER JOSEPH PULITZER, JR. MRS. JOSEPH H. CHOATE VINCENT ASTOR JOHN D. ROCKEFELLER JOHN DAVEY Father of Tree Surgery FINE house is built in a setting of magnificent trees and gives promise of great and permanent beauty. Drives are built and perhaps half the roots of the adjacent trees are cut away. The trees die or become half dead-ugly objects of the landscape. The lawn is graded. Heavy soil is dumped over the roots of the trees. No care or knowledge is used to protect these priceless features of the landscape. The trees die-nine times out of ten. He who says that.it does not hurt to bury the roots of trees, does not know trees. On the other hand, many an estate owner walks by some fine old trees on his place that are going to premature de struction from internal decay. The leaves may still be green and the trunks a mere shell, ready to break apart or topple over in a wind storm. He is unconscious of impend ing loss, because he has had no occasion to learn how trees live-or how and why they die. The very first thing-you owe this to yourself-you ought to do to protect the cash value of your trees, is to secure the advice and suggestions of a Davey Tree Surgeon. A careful examination of your trees will be made by appointment.
