Soils of Pender County, North Carolina, 1910 free pdf Excerpt from Soils of Pender County, North Carolina, 1910: A Preliminary Report The bottom lands in the valleys of some of these streams are only a few feet above sea level. A conspicuous feature of the county is seen in the numerous "bays," or wet areas, which usually support a dense growth of shrubbery and trees, as bay, pine, black gum, sweet gum, and gallberry bushes. The better drained lands support a growth of pine, with a sprinkling of oak and hickory and an undergrowth of wire grass and huckleberries- while the poorly drained soils support mainly pine and a thick undergrowth of gallberry bushes, bay, pitcher plants, etc. Probably less than a third of Fender County is under cultivation. The population of the county in 1900 was 13,381. There has been some increase, especially in the towns, but there are a number of rural districts so sparsely settled that agricultural development has not made anything like the headway warranted by the productivity of the soils. The white population is largely of English and Scotch descent. There are a number of Italians in a recently established colony at St. Helena, and a relatively large number of negroes throughout the county. Three branches of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad cross the county. These, together with the usually good public roads, give the area excellent transportation facilities. Fast freight is offered to northern markets, Burgaw being within thirty-six hours of New York by refrigerator express freight. Climate. The climate of Fender County is mild and pleasant throughout most of the year. The summers are long, but the temperature is moderated by sea breezes. The winters are marked by moderate cold, with an occasional light snow. With a mean temperature of 48 F. for the months of December to February, inclusive, a number of vegetables can be grown throughout the winter, especially with a little protection, such as an occasional covering with cheese cloth, bagging, or some material like pine needles. A good idea of the climate is conveyed by the fact that such crops as Irish potatoes and radishes are I planted in January and February. The average season free from killing frosts is seven months and nineteen days. The frost line moves northward in the spring at the rate of about 13 miles a day, so that following this recession vegetables and berries average about a day later in maturity for every 10 to 15 miles traveled northward. This section is nearly intermediate between Charleston, S. C., and Norfolk, Va., in date of vegetable and berry shipments.
