Calling all wildlife! Seed grown, this wild apple tree grows to a height and spread of 12' to 20'. Characteristics such as size, color, taste and ripening dates will differ from tree to tree. Apples may fall from some trees in autumn, and others in winter. The Domestic Apple is a great, low cost alternative to the popular cultivars, and the wildlife love them. This is a great time to start your own wildlife orchard.
The Domestic Apple has excellent wildlife value, as many types of birds and mammals love to consume apples. In the spring, fragrant apple blossoms will please local bee populations as they collect nectar and pollen. The insects attracted to the trees will surely bring in a variety of birds. In the fall and winter, deer and other mammals will certainly appreciate the much needed food source.
