Ed, In my ignorance I have been cautious about mixing it up with the native 
stuff that surrounds my orchard....Does perhaps this mean that I might as 
well use this wild stock as a repository for scionwood varieties - because 
virus' are so endemic and transmittable that my trees would contact it 
anyway? Would be handy at times to graft onto native stocks, amelanchier, 
hawthorn, p. americana....besides experimenting with them as rootstocks. 
thanks, Del.......hoping to top out at 25F for Jan. today,  -28F was the 
bottom, looks might we might be missing another chance for a test 
winter..... : )
