heritage apple tree donations!

MORP donates heritage apple trees to communities and individuals that can provide the land, water, fence protection, and labor to care for them. Additionally one or more of the following criteria must be met:

  • Community space/project such as community, school, non profit, research, museum, or conservation orchard
  • Historic orchard property
  • Low income household such as Habitat for Humanity family
  • Native American household

In addition to the above criteria, donations are made based on availability. MORP selects the trees and in most cases you would need to make arrangements to pick them up in SW Colorado. Our donated trees tend to be on the Charlie Brown side of life in size and shape but are healthy otherwise. They will grow up beautifully with a good home. If interested, please send us an email briefly describing your project/qualifications including how many trees you could ideally care for and when you would be ready for them. morporchard@gmail.com
