Fruit and Ornamental Trees
Many of our fruit trees are already bearing - you don't have to wait years. That said, we get lots of questions about pollinators. Generally bees work to transfer needed pollen from up to 2 miles away and pollination partner trees are not necessarily required on your own property. This may not apply to isolated rural areas.
- All of our cherry trees are self-fruitful - a partner is not required.
- Our apple varieties (Honeycrisp, Honeygold, and Goodland) are mid-season bloomers and if a partner is required any of the others are expected to pair well.
- We've found the Alderman Plum and Summercrisp pear to usually have pollinator partner trees near enough in most parts of the Billings area.
