II Little Trees After three weeks of ordering, wrapping, and distributing over 15,000 tree seedlings, Greenbrier Valley National Bank ended its seedling giveaway April 28. "We are extremely pleased at how well the seedling giveaway was received by the people of the Greenbrier Valley area," stated Philip McLaughlin, President of Greenbrier Valley national Bank. "With Earth Day celebrations going on worldwide, it's especially gratify- ing to see our citizens able to help make our area even more beautiful through the planting of the seed- lings." The seedling giveaway was part of a marketing campaign for the bank and its four offices -- Rainelle, Rupert, Atderson and Lewisburg -- with the slogan, "Keeping the Valley Green." Although most of the trees were being planted in the Greenbrier Val- ley, some have been carried to dif- ferent parts of the state.

In an instant the huge pine tree by the horse field broke in half and crashed down, pulling the main electric cable with it. It was the peak of the storm and unidentifiable ob- jects flew past the view of the win- dow along with my son's yellow windbreaker, the lid to the barbecue grill, a frisbee, and a piece of a cracked flowerpot. The trellised, arched arbor in the front yard by the house fell flat on its face. I had spent the last three years training the wisteria to grow over it in a green upside down U. My heart sank as I watched it fall because I was counting on some dripping purple blossoms this spring. Not that my wisteria has ever bloomed for the four years we have lived here. Earlier this past fall my husband chopped at its roots with the back of his shovel. He used the shovel alternately like an ax and spear as" he attacked. The agricul- tural extension agent I had called for advice had recommended this vio- lent technique as a way to get it to bloom. Now t had to cut all the vines way back, disentangle the arbor, re- set the four metal poles in the ground, and start all over again. I cut away all of the vines except the three main ones. I'd read some- where earlier that drastic prunning might encourage flowering as welt. You see, I can't give up on the wis- teria although it would be far easier and al3parently wiser to do so.
