This time of year we are able to stay pretty busy working out in the orchards. We scout for blight, which grows in the tree and can actually kill off parts of the tree, or even the whole tree if you don’t spray it many times during the year, and also prune it out of the canopy.
This is the tower that we use to get up high in the trees. Our established orchard has very tall trees and most of the growth is at the top. That is also where the a lot of the blight starts, in the newer growth areas.
