Cherry Orchard in Old Mission Peninsula , Traverse City , Michigan

Michigan is the nation's top producer of tart cherries, which are used in pie filling and other products. Orchards in a five-county section of the northwestern Lower Peninsula account for about 80 percent of the U.S. crop — about 180 million pounds a year.

The early bloom from the record heat in March resulted in 80-90 percent bud kill on (tart) cherries.
and 40 - 60 % of the apple trees had bud kill caused by the recent cold snaps.
