Mapping Fruit Trees, Incompletely

I’ve written about Fallen Fruit before. It’s a group that maps publicly available fruit with the hopes that the drops will be shared. But at least one tree put on the map was requested to be removed. The owner didn’t want it made public, though some it its branches hang over public property. It was removed. The interesting thing about the map is that it’s not “too good” so that it’s not that easy to take advantage of a tree or the whole program.

The hand-drawn diagrams of the trees simulate a treasure map lacking landmarks.

Burns said this forces fruit-pickers to absorb their surroundings and refrain from treating the map as a shopping list, going from tree to tree.
