Abstract

The idea of utilizing an exotic rose, popularly known as the multiflora rose, to make living fences has caught the fancy of farmers, sportsmen and conservationists in general, specialists as well as laymen. Possibly because this Asiatic rose furnishes the entire fence rather than only the posts, is apparently easy to establish and seems to be the ideal escape and nesting cover for wildlife as well as a panacea for many soil erosion ills, it is being planted even more generally than was the black locust in the past decade without benefit of research to provide answers to questions of when, where, how and why.
