Silverwood Update

After a 4-day storm that dumped 5 feet of snow in the local mountains, we were up at Silverwood Lake State Recreation Area today delivering the trees we’ve been growing out for them and taking cuttings from the existing trees for grafting the remaining trees they need for rejuvinating their historic orchard.  These trees will consist of varieties grown here and other orchards in the local mountains.  We have pretty good documentation both of the varieties and the history of the orchards, and this seems to be the perfect place for them.  The elevation is in the foothills which receives frost and cold, but still gets summer heat that apples seem to like as it kills fireblight before it does much damage.
