This is an example of public produce. Adding fruit trees to allowable street trees would make abundance like this possible in cities nationwide.
The majority of the fruit on this tree, centrally located in the City of Dunwoody, GA, typically rots. I am going to ask the city if it will help Team Food Pantry pick it to donate to those in need at the local food pantry. I need the city's help for safety because this tree is in a heavily trafficked area.
