The Cultivation of Basket Willow
In the United States appears, from facts
which have come to our knowledge, to be
a subject deserving serious toimuleration.
It is stated, upon the best information,
that the value of the annual importation of
the article into this country amounts to
nearly five millions of dollars, and that
large as the quantity may seeni, it does not
satisfy the consumption. The supply is
derived from France and Germany, and the
price paid her ranges from $lOO to $l3O
per ton weight. There are three varieties
of the plant regarded as best suited for
basket making, farming, tanning and fen
cing. Of these, the Salix Viminalis is
most used in the manufacture of baskets,
and, under favorable circumstances of soil
and culture, an acre of ground will yield
at least two tons weight per year, costing,
when prepared for market, about $35 per
ton. The species is the Salix Cupua, or
Huntingdon willow, adapted for basket
making, but more extensively employed by
,English farmers for hoop poles and fen
cing. When used for the latter purpose,
the manner of planting is described to be
"by placing the ends of the cuttings in
the ground, and then working them into a
kind of trellis work, and passing a willow
withe around the tops, so as to keep them
in shape for the first two years. The tops
are afterwards cut off yearly, and sad to
basket makers, thus obtaining a fence and
crop front the same ground." The hurdle
fences of England removable at the pleas
ure of the proprietors, are also made from
the Salix Capua. The third kind of wil
low to which we have reference, is the
Salix 416 a, or Bedford willoW, which is
held in high esteem as a shack tree, and
very generally cultivated for this use in
England. It is remarkable for its beauty
and rapid growth—affording a Food shade,
it is said, in two years after planting. The
bark is, also, much prized for its superior
tanning properties, while its wood, from its
fine grain and susceptibility of a polish as
fine as that made of rosewood or mahogany,
is in extensive requisition for shoemakers'
lasts, boot trees, cutting boards, gun and
pistol stooks, and house timber. This,
too, is the willow that is chiefly used
in England in the manufacture of gunpow
der. An acre of the wood, after ten years
'from planting, has sold for £155.
As respects the practicability of growing
in this country the willows enumerated ex
periment by a number of enterprising, far
mers and horticulturists in New York and
other States, has been made successfully
on a small scale. The soil and cli
mate of the United States are, in many
;Places, favorable to the cultivation of the
plant, and but little care is necessary to
bring it to perfection. Those persons who
have engaged iu the enterprise, and have
experience in the work of raising this spe
cies of vegetable for manufacturing pur
poses, assert confidently that it can be
grown profitably in numbers of the States,
at $5O per ton weight. It ii also said,
upon well ascertained data, that there are
hundreds of thousands of acres of land
here, either not improved at all, or yield
ing but a very small per cent per annum,
which could be made, by occupying them
with the ozier, productive of immense pro
fits. On this point, an intelligent gentle
man who has a practical acquaintance
with the subject, says:
"Every farmer will acknowledge mead
ow land to be poor that will not yield a
ton of hay to the acre, which, when cured
and in market, seldom sells for more than
$l2. All men who are acquainted with
the growth of willow for market, well
know that an acre of land ought to yield
at least one and a half tons weight of it.--
The cost of preparing willow for market
would not exceed $4O per ton. Now, vs
timating hay at $l2 per ton, and willow
at $l2O, deducting from the willow $4O
per ton for preparing for market, there is
a balance in favor of the willow of $BO
TLe feasibility of the cultivation in the
United States.has been, hitherto, and very
naturally, decried by importers, who have
represented the crop to be liable to damage
from flies, and have also alleged the price
of labor to be too high to allow of fair re
numerating returns. In contradiction of
this, we hero cite the testimony of Mr. W.-
(1. Haynes, of New York, who is occupied'
in the production of the willow for mechan
ical uses. Ho says:—.l have grown as
good a quality of willow as is raised in any
part of the world. That taken front two
acres, cut last year, yielded me,
all expense, the snug little sum of $333 . 75 t
If I had the means, I would purchase
lands and plant thousands of acres of wil
low, and find a ready market for it."
To convince those who have not investi-1
gated the subject of the lucrative nature
of the trade, it is sufficient to state that
the large importation of baskot-willow,
made during last summer, by four or five l
hoses iu New York, was not equal to oven
half the demand, which is increasing every
13.-4 :f hn• hoar,. tligenVer.
NUMBER 11 :
ed by one who has industriously collected
the statistics, that the amount of money
paid for willow-tirskets alone, in the city
of NeW eiceeded $1,000,000, and
that the stun paid for baskets shipped to
to the Southern and West India markets,
probably reached $2,000,000 snore.—
These fads are certainly important and
well worth the reflection of nice who are
properly situated for embarking in a busb: -
ness which, in all points of view; promises
advantages so decided and great. Tho
native product would always command zr
sale here, in preference to that imported,
by reason of the cleanness of the crop and
its freedom front the bruizing and break
age occasioned by packing iu a ship's hold,
not to mention that the imported article
is the mere refuse of the foreign crop,
which is generally carefully picke by the
French and German basket-makers, who
retain the beat qualities for their own
manufacture into fabrics subsequently ex
ported to this country.
Besides the inducements which an ex
tensive domestic demand for the willow
holds out to our agriculturists, Great Brit
ain annually imports from the continent a
large quantity of it, and there is no.',•feason
why producers of the raw material here
should not supply the consumption of gfig ,
land as well as of the United States. In'
short, the project of cultivating the Salia 4
Vitninalis, and other species of the plot'
adapted to manufactures, appears worthy
to claim the earnest attention of the Amer?
loanfernier; and, in view of the obvious
rewards which it would yield flit labor and'
capital ; we are surprised the subject has
not long since been discussed in the agri
cultural societies of the lead, and fried'
thoroughly by liberal and enlightened ex
periment. It is not yet too late to render
it a valuable source of private and nation
al revenue.—North .firneri can:
