Volunteers go out on a limb at Harkness in Waterford

Waterford — Friends of Harkness horticulture volunteers were pruning trees Wednesday in the apple orchard at Harkness Memorial State Park.

John Suher, the horticulture volunteer chairman and coordinator, said the orchard has approximately 40 apple trees that were planted in the mid-1990s and this year volunteers plan to buy 20 trees to add.

He also said the Connecticut College Arboretum will create a map of the orchard showing the unusual varieties of apples there and will help select the varieties for the new trees.
