    At the end of winter, it is better to check how our garden trees survived the frosts. A summer resident from Moscow, Ivan Timofeevich Zyatkov, told me about one of these methods. Visiting his lands in early spring, he cuts 2-3 branches from pear, apple, plum, and cherry trees and keeps them in a cool room for about three hours. After this, he brings it into a warm place and lowers it into water to a depth of 10-12 cm. After three days, he takes out the branches and makes transverse sections on them. If the cut is light, the branch is healthy. And if it’s darkened or brown, it’s unfortunately frozen. Such branches must be cut down to healthy wood, which is what the owner does.
