Darrel Johnson, our Fox Haven Chestnut Orchard steward, hosted a work party on Saturday, December 20th, to remove about 70 trees at the Fox Haven orchard; they were trees that were inoculated with the blight last June and did not show enough resistance. The parts of the trees that showed blight were hauled to a pile and burned. The unblighted branches and trunks were put into brush piles to shelter wildlife.
Scout Troop # 792 and scout parents were a tremendous help, along with Ron Clements, Austin Kuipers, Pete and Shelley Packard, Mark Vollaro, Andrew Rolowicz, Darryl Johnson, Alan and Susan Proper. Thanks everyone!
