FruitShare Services

We offer the following services to homeowners registered in FruitShare with the understanding that they improve the health of trees, thus providing more and higher quality fruit to donate to hunger relief. Please only sign up for a service if your tree is registered and if you would like us to harvest it this season.

Pruning (January - March)

$65 / tree, $35 / each additional tree

We remove dead, damaged, and diseased wood, followed by suckers and water spouts, and then crossing branches. Pruning can help encourage the growth of larger, higher quality fruit as well as make it easier and more efficient to harvest.

There is also an optional branch removal, which costs $35/load to cover transportation, labor, and the fee at the dump.

Fertilizing (March)

$50 / tree, $10 / additional tree

We spray the trees with organic compost tea in the spring. Compost tea administers microbiology and nutrients into the soil which in turn, fertilize and improve the overall health of the fruit, trees, and soil.

Guaranteed Harvest (May - October)

$100

While we do our best to harvest as many trees as possible, we are not able to guarantee that we will harvest every tree that is registered. If you would like to ensure that your tree gets harvested, you can sign up for the Guaranteed Harvest service, and we will harvest your tree within a few days of your notice that is ready to be harvested.

Harvesting (June - October)

Free

Our harvest service is free! You schedule a time, we bring volunteers out to harvest your tree. The harvested fruit is split three ways: between the homeowner, the volunteers, and hunger relief. Fallen fruit must be picked up prior to the harvest, or we will charge $30 / tree for the fruit pick up.
