Fruit Trees

Orchard in Dog Yard

Anonymous added on February 19, 2014 | Answered

I live in a rural area with lots of whitetail deer. I have a fenced in veggie garden. I also have a large fenced in dog yard. What are your thoughts on putting a few fruit trees in an area that has been used by dogs for years?

As long as the fruit is not coming in contact with any dog droppings, it should be fine. I would have the soil tested for pH, just in case. If it is a smaller yard, the urine from the dogs may have affected the pH.
