On Saturday, June 4, volunteers from Pennsylvania and New Jersey came out to help inoculate trees from a BC3 orchard in Riegelsville, PA. Managed by PA-TACF volunteer Tom Pugel, the group inoculated 90 trees in just about 2 hours.

Originally planting in 1999, some replants were placed in 2000. The trees reached inoculation stage in the time expected. Many thanks to Tom for doing another fantastic job on yet another orchard.

And also to the volunteers who came out to help in the inoculation event.

Pictures from the event are below.
