If you have not been through downtown Truckee this week, do drive through. The Crabapples and Apples throughout lower Truckee are in full bloom right now. Check out out Apple trees in front of the nursery. They were topped (very badly pruned - before we were here) and we've been working on their rehabilitation since we moved in. Don Triplat is a good man and a fine arborist and he has helped us by pruning these trees on numerous occasions.
this is the Malus sargentii we attempted to save from the saw but were thwarted in our efforts throughout. We managed to move it to our Caltrans offramp beautification easement but I'm not holding my breath. It WAS a beautiful and perfect specimen of that species.
