Almost Ready to Harvest!
My registered tree is almost ready to harvest!
We require 1-2 weeks notice in order to organize a harvest event. If your tree needs to be harvested in a day or two you can still let us know and it will help us be better prepared to predict the harvests in future years.
Is Your Tree Almost Ripe?
We have compiled a list of books at the
Ottawa Public Library's website
that could help you figure that out!
Our Current Focus
Sending us this helpful information does not guarantee we will be able to harvest your tree. Hidden Harvest is growing, but we do not have the resources to harvest every tree registered.
This year we are focusing our efforts on neighbourhoods & wards where we have permission to harvest more than one tree. Registering your tree early AND helping nearby friends and neighbours register their trees is a good way to increase the chances that we will be giving you a call to arrange a harvest.

Picture of the tree & fruit
A picture is worth 1,000 words and can help our Neighbourhood Leaders estimate the right number of volunteers required and organize a safe, efficient harvest. We suggest sharing one picture of the tree and one close up picture of the fruit.
