RE: FW: fruit trees

In Portland, Oregon the City of Portland Parks and Recreation has 7 year old
a demonstration orchard next to a community garden in Gabriel Park. There
are 60 dwarf and semi-dwarf apples, pears and some cherries and plums. The
fruit is used at a public orchard celebration in the fall on-site. We hold
two pruning classes and a Least toxic pesticide workshop at the orchard.
There are fruit trees planted (where space allows) at each of the Portland
Community Gardens. As yet, there isn't a policy that allows fruit trees in
the general publicly-owned landscape. Our food security and sustainability
coalitions would like to see that changed. If anyone would like a brochure
about our Gabriel Orchard, contact me, and I will mail you a copy.
Fruit is Good, and trees provide.

Subject: fruit trees

Does anyone have any information on how different municipalities handle
fruit trees, if they choose to plant them to beautify the city? We are
working with a municipality in the interior of BC which is seeking funds to
plan tree planting, and wondering how to regulate them ... eg. what when
kids steal the fruit (as if that weren't the whole point...)  Anyway, it
would be helpful if people have any comments on regs, bylaws, procedures,
