Remember to Remove Vole Guards

April 20, 2017

If you haven't done so already, remember to remove vole guards from orchard trees asap – and then keep an eye on tree trunks for signs of borers. For other spring orchard-care tips, see C.J. Walke's article "In the Orchard – A Calendar to Guide Apple Tree Care" in The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener. And remember, too, Walke's advice that "the best orchard activity is the frequent observation of tree and fruit growth, combined with an awareness of life in your orchard ecosystem."
