Michigan Apple Trees Doing Fine Despite Frigid Winter
Michigan's winter has brought record snowfall and cold temperatures, but it appears Michigan apple trees will be just fine.
As spring nears, concerns will also turn towards Michigan's large fruit crops.
Michigan apple trees are in good shape, so far.
On March 3, Michigan Apples shared this on its Facebook page:
We may be cold, but our apple trees are fine! The cold temperatures keep apple trees dormant (asleep), which protects them from any damage. Apples can handle temperatures to -25 degrees F before we would expect any damage to plant tissues. So while we are cold, Michigan’s apple trees are simply sleeping!
Some good news for now. Hoping to hear more as spring nears.
