Volunteer Work Day at the Ruth Cochran Orchard in TN
July 22, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
We have over 400 trees to inoculate and we need a bunch of folks to help us out with these larger seven and eight-year-old trees at the Ruth Cochran Orchard in Petersburg, TN. This orchard, planted in 2009 and 2010, is a great site for growing chestnuts, aptly located on Chestnut Ridge, in Moore County, TN. Please join us on Saturday, July 22 at 9:00 AM, to inoculate chestnut trees with blight fungus.
Bring water, lunch & snacks, gloves, sun block/sun hat, bug spray, and dress for the weather. Each day we will work through the afternoon or until all the trees are inoculated. Your volunteer effort is making a significant contribution to the restoration of the American chestnut tree to Tennessee forests, so thank you!
