Orchards surviving the snow and cold

Though the fruits of their labor will not be seen for a few more months, orchard owners in Door County are working hard this winter to help ensure a productive season. Wood Orchard in Sturgeon Bay is increasing the number of crews it has to make sure trees are pruned while they sit dormant. The snowdrifts have made pruning efforts difficult in some cases, orchard owner Steve Wood says everything else has been going along just right.

Wood admits the tree could have been deeper into dormancy if the area had a colder winter. He does not expect the trees and the upcoming crop to be negatively affected by it unless there is a major warm-up in the coming weeks.
