Oregon Fruit Tree Inventory, 1993

The special Fruit Tree Survey conducted by the Oregon Agricultural
Statistics Service during the spring of 1993 showed
over 7.5 million fruit trees growing in commercial enterprises
in Oregon.  The trees were being grown on 47,500 acres. 
Fruit tree density (trees per acre) increased across the board
in Oregon during the 7 years since the previous survey, with
dramatic increases for pears and apples.  The 1993 total of
all fruit trees in Oregon was up 29 percent from 1986, but
the all fruit acreage was down 4 percent.

Other pears (excludes Bartletts) continued to lead the tree
count with nearly 2.9 million, while apples followed with
almost 2.2 million trees.The Bartlett pear tree count at 949,200,
ranked third while sweet cherries came in fourth at 871,500 trees.

On an acreage basis, other pears led with 14,400 acres. 
Sweet cherries were second with 11,850 acres while apples
ranked third with 9,500 acres.  Bartlett pears accounted for
5,700 acres and ranked fourth.  Statewide, other pears
increased over 2,100 acres while other fruit types declined in
acreage.

Additional data on tree age and variety by county or major
producing area are available in a separate Fruit Tree Inventory
bulletin published in October 1993.
