Orchard Fruit Trees can be dedicated to someone or something you love and will be planted during the winter season of 2014/15. See our “How to Dedicate a Tree” page for more information or contact Dhira through the Contacts page. We will be planting 4 large standard traditional Yorkshire varieties of apple and pear together with a selection of 12 – 15 semi dwarfing root stock including apples, pears, plums and cherries. All Fruit Tree dedicators will be able to visit the Orchard and after leaving a 10% tithe for wild life, share in the gathering of any potential fruit. The dedications will be added to the Record Book along with the Boundary Tree Dedications to be archived with Bradfield Parish for 200 years.
