FREE-Caring for Wild Apple Trees

and Crop Trees for Wildlife and Timber

Please contact host if attending

Caring for Wild Apple Trees and Crop Trees for Wildlife and Timber is a Grafton County Conservation District (GCCD) workshop geared toward landowners who want to learn more about managing wild apple trees, identifying and managing crop trees, and how to help them grow better for wildlife, timber production, and other purposes.

Join Tom Ebert, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) District Conservationist, and Jim Frohn, Grafton County Forester with UNH Cooperative Extension, on Friday, February 22, 2019 and learn about forest practices that benefit your trees.  The workshop starts at 1:00PM at the UNH Cooperative Extension Conference Room at the Grafton County Complex, Route 10, North Haverhill, NH.

Are you wondering how to improve your woodlot for wildlife, increase the growth and value of your timber, or just want healthy, vigorous trees growing in your forest? Do you have apple trees growing in your woods or a crowded stand of trees? Our workshop will introduce the concepts of caring for wild apple trees to benefit wildlife, as well as the concepts of crop tree management for a variety of benefits including, wildlife, timber, and other forest stewardship goals.

Landowners are often encouraged to contact NRCS or UNH Cooperative Extension for a woodlot visit to learn about conservation practices that can enhance wildlife habitat, forest vigor, quality, and value.  NRCS offers technical and cost-share assistance to eligible landowners for several conservation practices that improve forest and wildlife habitat.

The 2019 GCCD Plant Sale offers a variety of shrubs great for wildlife food and cover, pollinators and buffers.  We have balsam and Fraser fir, wildlife shrubs, apples, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and hardwood trees.  Plant Sale information will be available at the workshop, or can be requested by calling Pam at (603) 353-4652.
