Fruit trees

All owners of fruit bearing trees or shrubs are responsible for controlling insect pests on their properties to prevent them from severely affecting nearby neighbors and professional growers.

To protect the commercial fruit industry in the South Okanagan and Similkameen, the RDOS has had Bylaws in place since 2001 that ensure better control of fruit tree pests. The Bylaw has recently been updated to include new species and emerging threats.

The Bylaw and related information on mitigation can be obtained at the RDOS office or on the main RDOS website.
