*Do not overharvest. Leave ample fruit for reseeding and wildlife food. Respect that native plants are already in competition with both human development and invasive species. When you deplete an area of its native species you are inviting invasive species to establish themselves. This is one of the many reasons it is great to grow your own trees if you’re hoping to harvest significant amounts bark or lumber, it is best to grow the trees yourself. Please check your County's local laws for harvesting (even for bark, flowers, or leaves) before gathering.
