National Wild Turkey Federation- Operation Appleseed #1

Year Planted: 2000

Trees Planted: 0
Location: Maryland

In 2000 local chapters of the National Wild Turkey Federation planted 6,000 Sargent crabapple trees with shelters through Operation Appleseed. This program focuses on the establishment of crabapple orchards for fall and winter food sources for turkeys and other wildlife. This program is important in the Northeast as the conversion of small farms to woodlands has caused a reduction in this type of habitat. Trees were planted in Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and West Virginia. Mead also supported this project.
