Question for those of you with fruit tree guilds. This is the first winter since I planted guilds around my established appletrees. This is the time of year when I normally prune...but it's occurred to me although there is a snow cover, I'll be trampling over everything (including woodier shrubs that are mostly hidden under the snow).
Wondering if anyone else in colder climates has this issue, and what they do about it? (FYI my guilds are all in a good 8" of woodchip mulch, and are a lot 'fuller' / more densely planted than the below early pic suggests. They include blueberries, strawberries, rhubarb, comfrey, daylilies, mint, lupin, chives, etc.
