No one puts out a better tree catalog than my friends at Fedco Trees in Maine. Heirloom and cider apples on Antonovka rootstock, along with modern cultivars on clonal stock. I love how this cooperative effort enables small farmers to make a living working with trees. The vintage artwork coupled with intriguing tree lore throughout the printed catalog certainly adds to the fun!
