Mark your calendar- June 25, Third Field Trip!
What will we see? A nearly 3 acre site that was previously a forest of non-native trees that has been removed to be planted with a chestnut orchard. You’ll see the result of hard work to remove the trees, prep the land, plant the chestnuts, and protect them so they succeed in the future. Irrigation is in the midst of being installed as is electricity. Come prepared to ask questions and discuss how to establish a chestnut orchard.
Meet at 1pm at the Meijer in Birch Run, Michigan (I-75 exit 136) 9515 Birch Run Road at the south side of the building near the greenhouse. From there trip participants can carpool or caravan to the orchard (about 5 miles east).
Snacks and water will be provided.
