Orchard Survey 2008


The CDPR Cultural Stewardship Program conducted an on-line survey of state parks with orchards and fruit trees.  Historic orchards and fruit trees are newly recognized types of cultural landscape resources, and more information is now available for their management.  In 2008, the National Park Service (NPS) Cultural Landscapes Program will publish a historic context study of orchards throughout the United States from 1600 until the present.
