I've heard of people doing this but not exactly sure how to get started. I mean, I see plenty of people who do NOTHING with their apple and pear trees, I know "spots" in my local dont-pick-anything-or-we'll-shoot-you metro park to find sour cherries and wild apples, among other things. I thought about maybe posting an ad in the paper or on craiglist that might say something like "Do you have fruit trees? Tired of them making a mess? I want your abandoned apples!" Really, it is ridiculous how many abandoned apple trees there are just in my neighborhood. Whaddya think?
