Thank you Renova Fort Ross Foundation! This video shows four hours of pruning a Benitz-era apple tree in under a minute. Expert pruning and camera work by Keith Parks, Horticulturist / Arborist, John Muir National Historic Site. Don't try this at home! Over the last few years FRC has facilitated the rehabilitation of the historic Fort Ross orchard -- and while we're only the administrators, we're thrilled that we've helped this project along. We've got specialists from National Parks service and an incredible group of dedicated volunteers (headed by the talented Susan Rudy) making every penny donated by Renova Fort Ross Foundation go even farther to ensure the preservation of this incredible living resource.
