Entry of Single Christmas Trees Authorized
According to a notification of the Minister of Nourishment
and Agriculture (R. Z. Bl. No. 88, October 21, 1936, p. 362), the
provisions of the decree of June 3, 1930 (see pages 11 and 12 of
B.E.P.Q.-405, Importation of Coniferous Plants Restricted) are not
applicable to the importation of single Christmas trees without
balls of earth or to branches of conifers, insofar as those products
are intended as gifts or accompany shipments intended as gifts and
not for industrial purposes.
The decree of October 26, 1936, revokes and supersedes that
of February 28, 1929, on the prohibition of the importation of pine
and spruce seeds, as amended by that of September 13, 1929.
SConsequently, the two paragrraphs on p-:oe 13 of B.E.P.Q.-45
under the caption "Importation of Fine and Spruce Seeds Prohibited"
are to be stricken out and replaced by the following:
Importation of Seeds of Coniferous Trees Prohibited
