Orchard Volunteer Days — June

Light Orchard Maintenance In Berks County 
Tentative Date: 6/3/22 at 9:30 am
Near Wernersville in Berks County

Rick Hartlieb is organizing a volunteer day to do light maintenance on a 2019 planting of seedlings planted in short tubes. Volunteers will help inventory surviving trees, and replace the short tubes with 60″ plantra tubes to protect them from deer browse. Surviving trees will also be released by cutting 10′ circles of competing saplings.

Close to the parking area, the site is relatively flat, with uneven terrain (rocks and down trees) and dense vegetation of young trees and shrubs.

Volunteer Parking: Huntzinger Rd. in Wernersville
