The Old Idea of an Orchard and the New

The center of the picture shows the new type of orchard-the trees so small that a good part of the fruit can be picked without the use of a ladder. At the right is the old type of orchard, in which much of the energy of the tree was allowed to go to the development of needless branches, making it difficult to care for the tree properly, and particularly difficult to gather the fruit.
