Uncovering an Apple Tree

February 19, 2019

WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE FOREST?
We’re deep into the middle of the Apple Tree Pruning season. Last weekend, I was given the opportunity to restore some really old apple trees. When I walked up to them, they resembled one large “chia pet” of limbs and branches. But, somewhere inside there was a nice apple tree waiting to be released.
