Have fruit trees but cannot pick them? Want to find a tree to pick? Check out Wildsight’s Tree Share Board and Facebook group to find or post a tree.
Owning a fruit tree in bear country is a big responsibility but a properly maintained fruit tree is less of an attractant. Pick fruit daily as it ripens or pick it before it ripens if you don’t intend on using it and don’t allow fruit to accumulate on the ground.
