It is inadvisable on general principles to plant any trees affected by a contagious disease like crown-gall, and particularly so with varieties that do not root well from the scion. Trees of the following varieties are more likely to overcome a mild attack of crown-gall, as they are better able to root from the scion: Ben Davis, Wolf River, Northern Spy, Grimes, Gano, Northwestern Greening, Missouri, Wealthy, Walbridge, Fameuse, and Salome. The following statement made by Wickson (77) fully meets the views of the writer and applies to hairy-root as well as to crown-gall: If the diseased growth is so extensive during the early period of the life of the tree as to stunt the development of the root system, no favorable results can be expected during the later period of development of such a tree. It is fortunate that nursery trees are generally dug and sold at a period when the stunting effect, of these diseases is most marked. The same statement might be made of many poorly rooted trees which have not formed a perfect union between scion and root piece in the root graft and as a result have a defective root system, irrespective of these diseases.
