Apple Tree Rehab at Morosini Our annual project is revitalizing the old apple trees at Morosini! We have seen these trees bloom and produce the very same year! This is year five of our quest to not only revitalize the old variety trees at the reserve, but to make others more comfortable with the process before trying at home! Be at parking lot #1 by 9:30AM.

PLEASE register on our website or call 724-325-5523

Bring your work gloves, loppers, clippers, pole saws, and questions so that our team can share their experience.
