Area orchards dealing with potential crop damage

Although the harvest of cherries and apples are months away, local orchard owners are concerned about their investment throughout Door and Kewaunee counties.  Steve Wood of Wood Orchard in Egg Harbor and Sturgeon Bay says workers are pruning some of the more mature trees in the orchard right now.

 

 

 

 Wood says there is concern that the severe cold weather earlier this month might have caused damage to sweet and tart cherries.  He says it may be too early to tell, but some apple trees could have been affected as well especially varieties that are crossed with the more sensitive Gala apples.
