Orchard Caretaking

After an orchard is planted, it is the primary responsibility of the school or partner organization to maintain and care for the orchard. ReTreeUS supports this ongoing maintenance and stays in communication with designated Orchard Caretakers to make sure the fruit trees stay healthy and happy. In addition to regular Orchard Caretaker Newsletters (that feature seasonal maintenance tips) ReTreeUS also offers pruning and grafting workshops and encourages Orchard Caretakers to schedule orchard consultations with Richard. Orchard Caretakers can also refer to this annual maintenance scheduleContact us to inquire about these and other resources for ongoing maintenance. Thank you to all who contribute to the ongoing fruitfulness of the orchards!
