Wolf River Apple Tree

Wolf River apples In 1993, we planted three standard apple trees, Lodi, Honeygold and Wolf River. The Wolf River is the only one to have ever produced an apple crop. This year the tree produced so many apples that some branches broke and had to be removed. Wolf River trees are noted for the large sized apples that they produce which has not been a problem in the past. But this year, the combination of the size and number of apples was more than the tree could bear. Also, the animals seen eating the apples off the tree could have contributed to the damage. Raccoons have been spotted in the upper branches and deer can be seen standing on their two hind feet leaning against the branches to reach the apples.
