Apple trees respond to warm weather

It’s amazing what five days of warm weather can do. Check out these pictures of apple tree growth occurring over a span of just five days.

Warmer weather in the past week has really spurred on apple tree growth. These pictures are of the same buds where my apple scab spore monitoring equipment is located. This site is very near the Michigan State University Sparta Enviro-weather station and the cultivar is Linda Mac.
