As always, lots of good and timely information included between the covers. However, I'm hoping it was a gross oversight and not intentional that the individual in the cover photo is not identified by name. He obviously plays an important role in our industry. We identify fruit varieties by name, we iden- tify orchards by name, we identify insects by name, etc. Certainly human beings deserve at least equal recognition. At the very least, our manners are better than that; we need to do better than that. I do like the photo and appreciate that it was selected for the cover. I can empathize that it is not an easy task to make cover photo/art decisions. Susan Pheasant Wenatchee, Washington Ed Note:Although the person shown on the cover had agreed to be pho- tographed and was identified, the photographer was, regrettably, unable to secure permission to publish his name. Art of growing trees This planting off Lateral A in Wapato, Washington, caught the eye of Luke Anderson, field horticulturist with Holtzinger Fruit Company in Yakima, Washington, this spring. Anderson said commercial nursery trees are in short supply, and this grower apparently decided to devote 10 to 15 acres to growing nursery trees at the orchard, even though it means being out of production for additional time.
