I thought this story was interesting.

I have seen people picking cherries from the trees along Oak Avenue, but I am not actually sure if those are on private property or public. Anyone know?

I love the arrogance of some people. I think it's a good idea so I will ignore the law.  If you want to grow fruit trees, plant your own.


I remember sidewalks being inundated with rotting fruit in SoCAl. Slippery? Yes. Smelly? Yes


On the other side of the coin, many times I would catch people in my yard taking fruit off my trees as if it was theirs.Rarely, they would even grab fruit from the backyard as well! A friend of mine had about an acre of avocado trees in his front yard. The high speed chase of the thieving pickup truck loaded with hundreds of pounds of avocados made the front page of the news. Seriously, people have no respect for property rights anymore...
