    Good info, I did some looking on the county extension, looks like the three trees that will work good for my area and compliment each other are Fuji's, Honeycrisp, and Pink lady's. I guess I got lucky cause I like all 3, especially the pink lady's. Can only find them for a short period at the flea market, 10$ a bag, but they are sooooo good. Thanks for your help guys!

    I can only add what I heard on Mid American Gardener last week, when a caller wondered if his apple tree was a goner. Rabbits had eaten all of the bark off of the bottom of it. They suggested hardware cloth or chicken wire around the base and several inches from the trunk of the tree to keep the rabbits at bay. It was all the way down to the quick on the caller's tree, so they also suggested harvesting firewood from it and starting over.
    Use 3-4 wide hardware cloth/chicken wire so that the rabbits cannot climb a snowdrift and nibble it away. You can find the wider wire at a hardware store.
