Seeking Information on Starting Backyard Apple Orchards

Asked November 10, 2017, 12:10 PM EST

Hello, I have a quarter acre of land and am interested in planting apple trees. I mainly want them for the fruit, but also to provide food and habitat for wildlife and insects. I live in Montgomery County, Maryland. Any information or resources about how to get started in such a venture would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Adam Takoma Park, Maryland
