Survey of Suffolk Orchards
In the early 1900s, Suffolk had more than 6,000 orchards; click on the image (left) to see the full-size map.
Following the completion of STOG’s 3-year project, surveying continued through the Orchards East project to find out how many of those orchards remain, their potential for restoration and the locations of any newly planted, traditionally managed orchards. This included 'ground-truthing' the People's Trust for Endangered Species aerial orchard survey.
All of this is only possible thanks to an army of volunteers.
