Curran Apple Orchard Adopt A Tree Program

A Delicious Way to Support The Park

The Curran Apple Orchard offers a unique opportunity for individuals, families and groups to adopt and nurture a tree for an entire growing season. The Adopt A Tree program offers a unique opportunity for people to adopt and nurture their own apple tree through an entire growing season.  It’s a great opportunity for individuals, friends and families to work on a project together and learn about apple trees!  All adoptions are good for one harvest season.   All adopters will get their names on a tree tag and will have the opportunity to harvest in the fall.

There are two types of adoptions:   Pruning Adoptions and Orchard Supporter Adoptions.

Pruning Adoptions ($45 available December through March 31) are ideal for people who want to take care of their own tree according to orchard care policies.  Adopters are responsible for pruning, thinning, harvesting and cleaning up windfalls from their trees.  Free pruning instruction is available on our website as well as during pruning parties scheduled from January through late March.

Orchard Supporter Adoptions ($70 available December through July 31) are perfect for people who want a tree but who cannot participate in tree care.  Trained volunteers will prune and thin your tree; however, you are responsible for windfalls and harvesting.

All adoptions are good for one harvest season.  Existing adopters receive first priority for adopting trees the following year; however, new adoption applications are accepted starting in January.

Please note:  Due to weather and other conditions, we cannot guarantee harvest volumes from your tree; however, we will do our best to provide adopters with apples from other trees if possible.

All adoption fees help support orchard maintenance and activities. Existing adopters receive first priority for adopting a tree the following year if payments are received by December 31st. All new adoptions applications are processed starting January 1st. We appreciate your support!

All adopters’ names will appear on their trees. While current adopters receive priority on adoptions for the following years, trees are usually available for adoptions.
