Extmslm Imem Consumers Food Bill U.S. Consumers spent only 11.8 percent of their disposable personal income (after taxes) on food in 1989. For each dollar spent for food in 1990, the farm value was 24 cents. Where did the rest go? Packaging cost 8 cents: inter-city transportation was 4.5 cents, depreciation 4.5 cents, interest 2.5 cents; repairs 1.5 cents, and other costs ac- counted for 6.5 cents. When shopping for groceries, take a look at all the items in the gro- cery cart. Food is cheap-maybe too cheap!

Firewood and Tree Pests Firewood cut from fresh trees or trees recently infested by in- sects and diseases can contribute to the spread of pests to nearby healthy trees. Many pests can breed or survive in firewood piles. Problems in this area could include Dutch elm dis- ease, oak wilt, bronze birch bor- ers, and two-lined chesmut bor- ers. In most cases, the insect or disease overwinters in the shel- tered environment of the wood pile. The following spring, in- sects themselves or insect carry- ing spores emerge and infest nearby trees. Many local com- munities have firewood ordi- nances. Check with your local community concerning storage of firewood. Winter Tree Handling Salt and de-icing materials leech into the soil and can injure the roots of plants.
