Hardy Apple Trees Not so Hardy

Plattsburgh, NY – Orchardists say they normally lose about a dozen apple trees each year.

While apple growers in northern New York are dealing with the loss of almost 25-thousand trees, the overall apple crop in the state is predicted to be quite good. More from North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley.
