The LEAF Network is a community-based organization with the mission to link people with the benefits of edible trees and support edible trees with people’s stewardship.

CARE for Your Growing Trees 

Planning, designing, and planting a few trees, a food forest or a community orchard takes time, energy and effort, but the real work and payoff comes during the years of caring for and harvesting the trees. Trees should be consistently watered, fertilized, pruned, protected from extreme conditions, and treated for any problems that appear. To ensure vibrant, long-lived, food-producing edible trees, check trees once or twice a month throughout the year. Read useful resources, consult with neighbors and ask experts about the particular needs of your edible trees. Click the links below to learn more.
