Spores, Spores, Go Away

August 15, 2017

WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE FOREST?
Frequent rain makes the phone ring here at the office. Apples have been slated for a bumper year. However, with all this rain, many (not all) apple trees are experiencing leaf & fruit fungal issues as spores fester. Many of the apple trees I hear about and see are experiencing early leaf & fruit drop. We’ll see.

May the forest be with you,
