    coming up at the farm museum in Milton Moose Mountains Regional Greenways – Apple Tree Grafting and Pruning Workshops

    Really? I have a pear tree that produced 2 seasons ago with no other pear trees around. However, it suffered a pretty nasty fungus issue and did not produce last year. Hopeful for this year as its full of buds after a good pruning last fall.

    I do have an orchard thats probably 1.5-2 miles away where they have apple and pears.

    Re: Fruit Trees to Plant in New England

    Question for the thread participants ? Looking to plant a new tree. We were going to transplant a couple young dogwoods. But ......
    Iíd like a fruit tree. Potentially Cherry. Actually definitely cherry.
    Wife had one growing up birds ate all the cherries. Netting didnít even stop

    Anyone have issues with this ? The cherry picking fields never seemed to have an issue. We have a ton of chipmunks and squirrels
    Want to make sure we can enjoy the fruits with minimal protection effort to protect the fruits of he cherry tree

    I have single Pear which does great except, wood,wood, wood Gone the deer know to the hour when to steal them all

    I have good luck with peaches, and cherries, apples do well some years, Macintosh should work well

    I think you need a FEW seed catalogs so you can get ones hardy for New ENgland
