It was mentioned recently to our Council that the city should not only permit but foster the policy of incorporating fruit trees in our rights of way, specifically street rights of way.
I won't tell you my opinion on this proposal.
Suffice it to say, I have come up largely empty so far on my search for objective analysis of the idea.

Does your town allow them? What has your experience been? How does your code read?
