Snip, snip! Away with the branch… but which one?
On March 4, 2017, the volunteers of the Save Nature Group attended a fruit cutting course in Saalfeld. Under the guidance of Mr. Hans-Jürgen Mortag, an experienced pomologist, it was shown how different fruit trees are cut. After a brief introduction to the required materials, Mr. Mortage explained the planting, parenting and old-growth. Open questions could be answered professionally. For the volunteers, such seminars are a good way to apply the knowledge learned to the existing orchards. Markus and Johannes cut the first 100 trees from the Herschdorfer orchard on Sunday.
