A Southern California city is about to have all fruit trees stripped

More than 2,000 homeowners in San Bernardino County will have the fruit ripped from their trees, whether they like it or not, as state agriculture officials desperately try to eradicate the invasive Oriental fruit fly.

Workers are going door to door in the Redlands area to remove fruit from all citrus trees and other fruit-producing plants now through February, according to the California Department of Food and Agriculture.

The fruit removal is “mandatory” and should only be done by CDFA and other contracted workers, the department said. “Residents … are asked not to remove fruit from trees themselves and they may not move produce from their property.”
