Registering a fruit or nut tree helps the Baltimore Orchard Project ensure that the tree is getting the care it needs and that its produce isn’t going to waste. Once a tree is registered, we work to monitor its health, help stewards tend to it, and ensure the tree is harvested. Even if the tree and the tree-owner do not need our help, just knowing that the tree is there helps us in designing and managing Baltimore’s aggregated Orchard. Trees on one property can serve as cross-pollinators for trees on a nearby property.
Please take the time to register any food-bearing trees in the Baltimore Region either by right-clicking on the Falling Fruit map below, or by filling out a short form. Falling Fruit is open for anyone to edit and see, while the form submissions will be seen just by BOP.
