This spring we held our annual Apple Tree Release and Pruning Workshop at the Fells Historic Estate & Gardens and the Forest Society's Hay Reservation, both in Newbury. The classroom session was inside The Fells's offices, and we snowshoed across the street on the Hay Reservation for some field practice.
