APPLE CORE PROJECT

David Henry Thoreau once wrote: It is remarkable how the history of the apple tree is connected with that of man. In 2015 RHS helped kick off a project with a newly formed group. The Apple Core Project is dedicated to preserving our local heritage fruit by mapping trees and orchards, assisting with tree maintenance, developing economic viability, and educating the public about our fruit as a historical treasure. RHS continues to partner with this very important project. For more details go to:
